This Word document gives you all you need to have your students write in-depth Poetry Analyses. Included is:
--a thorough introduction to teaching an Analysis of a Poem,
--a step-by-step assignment/instruction sheet (with checkboxes for each task) that you can give to students,
--a rubric (with categories for Structure, Process, Description, Spelling and Grammar),
-three suggested mini-lessons (Rhyme Scheme, Meter, Linking Form & Content) with explanations and examples,
--a detailed brainstorming sheet,
--a long list of possible poem titles for students to choose from for their topic,
--and two mentor texts with questions.
The document is purposefully in Word so that you can tweak the instructions and/or rubric to fit your students' needs. Perfect for use in a writing workshop or as a single writing assignment.
