Learning Objective

Students will analyze a variety of poems and communicate their interpretations through arguments supported by textual evidence.

Description

Engage your AP Lit. students in poetry and teach them how to analyze highly-engaging poems through this bundle's interactive carousel activity and poetic explication poster jigsaw. Students will learn how to craft a poetic precis, which will help them develop the necessary skills for the AP Exam's Q1 Poetry Essay.

The carousel activity is focused on introducing poetry to your students, while having them consider the importance of word choice and selection of detail on theme. The collaborative poetic précis poster will acquaint your students with ways to write about poetry and have them considering author's purpose in relation to structure, word choice, and theme.

I used this to launch my AP Poetry unit and was thrilled with the student response! Students who could only be described as standoffish to poetry deeply engaged with and responded to these texts, asking for more poetry by some of the poets included.

These activities work as an excellent introduction to poetry and are an excellent tool for Regular, Honors or AP English courses.
