Product Description
This is a bell-ringer activity which asks students to read the poem (which easily leads to discussion and analysis), define one vocabulary word from the text (you can have students use context clues to determine the meaning or you can actually have students look the term up), find words with a negative connotation and show how that influencs the tone of the text, then find examples of imagery and parallelism in the text. I have my students keep all their bell-ringers in their interactive notebooks so that they can quickly and easily go back and find examples of literary techniques. Also, after we spend a week on a poet, I have them do a short constructed response on the unique style of that poet. These daily bell-ringers easily translate into more learning activities if the teacher wants to stretch them out.
