  • Write A Structured Poem

    Structured Poem Forms And Template Examples

    in Poetic Techniques


    Structured poems are poems that provide a specific format to follow. They are perfect for those who need a little more help forming a poem. They can easily be implemented in classrooms, no matter the age of the students. Even the youngest of students are able to craft their own poems with the guidance of a teacher.

    Before assigning these poems to your students, we encourage you to experiment with the forms as well. You might not see yourself as a poet, but teachers who write help their students become writers who are more willing to share their work.

    If they do not have events scheduled, talk to the director to see if you can help them set up a night where people come to read aloud their favorite poems or poems they’ve written.

    Poem ideas can be found anywhere. You just have to be open to their possibility and capture the ideas as they come.
