Description

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! You will receive these items as a Google Slides and as a fillable .pdf!

-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
