Product Description
The Highwayman, a narrative poem by Alfred Noyes, has been one of my favorites since I started teaching language arts over 20 years ago. I've memorized it, recited it to kids and explained it over and over. In this activity, they will gain a deep and comprehensive understanding of the poem, the story, the figurative language and new vocabulary through close reading.

Instructions for annotating are included as well as a list of figurative language used and text dependent questions.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.8.3 Analyze how particular lines of dialogue or incidents in a story or drama propel the action, reveal aspects of a character, or provoke a decision.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.8.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including analogies or allusions to other texts
