Because our role as teachers is to show students how to acquire information instead of simply giving it to them,each of three poems has a list of steps across the top of the page telling them to do things as simple as numbering lines or as complex as identifying tone and mood. I've also added a link to "Mr. Mistoffolees" from Cats. Younger students enjoy comparing the two!

This unit was created to introduce poetic devices to middle school students through three catchy poems:
-"The Cat of Cats"
-"Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Scout"
