Product Description

If you have no other plan for a poem, this worksheet is for you! If you want to provide a structured approach for your students to delve into and better understand (interpret and analyze) a poem, go no further! If you want to provide your students with thoughtful, thought-provoking ways to uncovering the meaning of poetry for themselves, you've come to the right place! :-D

Contained herein is a three-page worksheet which has been set up to both be probative when it comes to encountering a poem, but also generic enough that it is applicable to all poems. I use it either as a one-off poetry lesson (especially when I have student practice for examinations), or as part of a poetry project.

I've also found this very useful for ESL / ELL / EFL students to have a "plan of attack" when encountering a poem. It eases all students' anxiety as this is a series of questions that can be used to not feel as overwhelmed as it gives a structured approach and practises the skills needed to understand, interpret, and analyze poetry.

Full Disclosure: My three-page worksheet is based on a two-page ReadWriteThink worksheet that is freely available online. I have used it as inspiration, though I have added and updated it to meet my teaching needs. To see their worksheet, click the following: www.ReadWriteThink.org

Another poetry product that I think you may be interested in is 20 Tips and Tricks for Reading (and Understanding) Poetry. This is a PowerPoint presentation and handout for students to learn ways to better read, understand, and begin to interpret any poem.
