This passage is a 718-word reading text and a combination of introduction to poetry forms and 8 example poems. It would possible if we want to teach ss every characteristic of each form of English poems and appreciate 8 English poems in 40 minutes without reorgnizing the learning material. Consequently, we separate the introduction and the poems and get a 328-word text and 8 simple poems (6 of them are put into an envelope for each student and the other 2 as extra materials.). (See Appendix 1&2) Besides, we only focus on the major characteristics of each form, thus save time in analyzing the reading passage.
