Product Description
This Rich Bits of Lit activity is used to teach close reading. The poem used is Ezra Pound's "In a Station of the Metro", which is only 2 lines, so students are asked to give reasoning for why he used each word. This download includes the poem itself, instructions, and space for students to write about each word. This activity is excellent preparation for my "Putting a Word on Trial."
