Our Prose, Poems, and Drama lesson plan
is designed to provide students with basic information about three types of fiction writing: prose, poems, and drama. During this lesson, students are asked to read three provided texts and determine which is prose, which is a poem, and which is drama, demonstrating their ability to recognize each type of writing. Students are also asked to choose a theme and then write four pieces of writing based around that theme: two poems, one piece of prose writing, and one piece of drama writing; this gives them the opportunity to practice each type of fiction writing on their own.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain major differences between prose, poems, and dramas. Students will also be able to replicate the three formats in their own writing.
