Allow your students to try your hand on 6 poems from the Big 6 poets using the S.M.I.L.E. method. This handout is challenging. I put my kids in groups of four and allowed them to choose 4 of 5 questions to answer about each one for a 50 minute period. The day after this more strenuous day of analysis, students were rewarded with a creative one-pager project. It's a nice pairing. Included in this file: SMILE sheet, class-set handouts of poems, 3-up one-pager project sheets, and 6-up rubrics for grading projects.
