PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit contains study questions (with answers) on the poems "Digging" and "Daystar," an analytical commentary on "Daystar," and three writing assignments (essay topics and a paragraph topic) on the two poems. Nobel Prize winning author Seamus Heaney's poem "Digging" and Poet Laureate Rita Dove's poem "Daystar" are appropriate for English classes for 10th graders, 11th graders, 12th graders, and college students.
After the information about the two poems, (three) paragraphs that discuss the proper organization of an essay are included in the file. Specifically, general instruction about building a thesis statement, building topic sentences, and building a conclusion are provided (in a three paragraphs). This unit is six pages in length. The themes of work and other adult responsibilities, symbolism (two symbols in "Daystar"), and a slight bit of information about imagery are integral to the study of these two (excellent) poems.
