Alina D. re: Poetry Analysis, Types of Poetry, Definitions and Examples
This will be my second year teaching AP an I am interested in this guide. Will this have a teacher's guide/answer key attached to help with the implementation of the lesson plans?

No, there is not an answer key or teacher's guide.

Buyer re: Poetry Analysis Student Handbook for AP Literature and Composition
I have a question, before I purchase. I actually teach IB, not AP, but I would like to teach them poetic analysis in case they get a poem on the exam. My question is, does this packet also include analysis of rhythm, rhyme, enjambment, caesura....these are the areas where I, as a teacher, am less confident.

A little... all of the poems are paired with analysis questions, and some of those questions deal with these techniques.

Is this simply a powerpoint, or are there handouts, activities, etc.? Thanks!

It's just the PPT. The numbers on it refer to the Part and paragraph in the text so you can refer to it. For example, on slide 5, 1:21 means the 21st paragraph of Part I.

Eek! That must have been an uploading mistake on my part. I will update the file so that you can download it again. If that doesn't work, email me at msmith@lncs.org and I will send it to you directly.

Alison T. re: Poetry Analysis Student Handbook for AP Literature and Composition
Purchased this item from you. Really like the idea of compiling so many great classic poems in one place...do you have an answer key that accompanies this? It isn't possible to spend classtime going over all of these and would like to be able to quickly provide exemplars/answers to students and even my TAs as they may be grading some of these.

Thanks!

I do not have an answer key, sorry. I agree that it is too much material to cover all the poems in class, which is why I assign a poetry project to my class. Each student becomes a "master" of one of the poems (they pick a title out of a bag randomly). After they complete the project, they get into small groups and teach each other the poems. I can send you the project if you email me at msmith@lncs.org. I highly suggest my Types of Poetry PPT - it includes the definitions of the different types of poetry and has the questions for the first few poems in the handbook.

Hi There!

I teach 8th grade English and absolutely LOVE your resources :) I've got several of your items in my cart, but I just wanted to see if you were going to offer any promo codes or "black Friday" coupons over the holidays before I purchase? If so, I would love to hold off and then perhaps add a few more goodies to my cart with the money saved. If not, I'll go ahead and purchase fewer items now.

Thanks for sharing your fantastic items on TPT!
