Teach your students how to analyze poetry, and then get them exploring, discussing, and writing about the bigger themes of American Literature such as materialism, love, race, family dynamics, class, immigration, language, tradition, the search for the self and the American dream. Poetry spans from the Puritan times to today.
This bundle includes enough for over three weeks of lessons, including two different options for ending assessments. Every lesson includes questions for close reading and literary analysis, as well as suggestions for quick-writes and discussion questions. Every lesson comes with ready-to-go handouts.
No lectures, no power points—this is all student-centered, rigorous analysis of poems.
From the Elements of Poetry handout, which explains not just how to identify poetic elements but how they function in a text, to the questions that focus students on specific elements and how they work in the poems, every poetic element is covered with this bundle.
