I suggest making your students a list of exemplary lines in iambic
pentameter.

I always include:

She sang against the genius of the sea.  -Wallace Stevens

They beat this yellow nigger black and blue.  -Derek Walcott

Never never never never never.   -Shakespeare

[Lesbia] You drag your dripping cunt all over town.   -Cattulus

It gets their attention.  They automatically memorize them.
