AP Literature Structure and Shifts in Poetry Lesson: Empower your AP Lit. or advanced students to think deeply about the way poets structure their literary texts through analyzing "Untitled" by Peter Meinke, utilizing engaging task cards with a variety of other poems, and taking notes on key structures and shifts in poetry. This resource is aligned to Poetry Unit I of the 2019 AP Literature CED and is the perfect way to introduce structure and shifts in poetry without overwhelming students.
Once the lesson is complete, students will demonstrate their understanding by working with a partner or small group to work on task cards that will help further develop their understanding of how shifts and structural choices impact the overall meaning of the text.
Alignment to AP Literature Curriculum Framework:
