Everyone loves TPCASTT. It’s a good acronym to guide students through the process of reading a poem, but oftentimes my students are so intimidated by a poem that they can’t even get started. So I teach my students these four steps before reading a poem. Each one of these steps is designed to help students break down a poem so it becomes less intimidating. These steps work for ANY poem and empower students to take ownership of a text. In addition, each step sets students up for quality annotations and helps them see the inner workings of a poem
Because all my classes are different, the way I present these steps varies from group to group, so you have lots of options in this resource. All of these items are ready to print and use!
-use the blank notes page to set up lecture
-print and hand out the completed pages as review
-give students the bookmarks as a tool for annotation
-use the last and largest handout as an anchor chart
