PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For use with the poem “Casey at the Bat.” Students will analyze the poem to identify select poetic devices, including theme and mood. Then they will use several of those elements in writing their own poem about a competition with an unexpected or disappointing ending.

In the premade poetry analysis, students will analyze a poem to identify mood, style, line length, stanza organization, rhyme, meter, and theme. There is also a blank analysis worksheet that can be used for teacher or student-selected terms.

Imitating literary elements from a model text is a way to practice analyzing and implementing those devices. It can force students to work with elements they wouldn’t normally pick, or even make them actively consider the literary devices they are using.

In choosing a topic, students have a good deal of freedom. The original poem is about a baseball game. The student poems can be about any type of competition. This may include other sports or sporting events, but also other competition from beauty pageants to spelling bees or video game tournaments and more.
