Here's my opinion, free and worth what you pay for it: definitely alternate poetry and fiction -- there will, IMO, be "cross pollination" between the two disciplines and I think you can make some interesting points when discussing, say, show versus tell or POV in poetry versus the same thing in fiction.

My inclination would be to split up an author's work depending on the theme/topic of the moment, rather than read all of an author's work at once -- you're teaching creative writing, not explication.

Teaching Writing Skills

Writing is a crucial part of learning and I think it is very important to continually improve your writing skills.
