Here is the tool you need! This power point has been designed to support my Analyzing Poetry Activity but you can adapt it to use poems you already have. Teach your students the mnemonic device created by my kids...MAPS HIO. Project the graphic organizer and ticket out the door. Handy for presenting and class discussions. This will help students who need to see, as well as hear, the directions.
This powerpoint activity provides students with a slide that has my graphic organizer to record information. At the end of the task, assess your students' individual understanding with a quick five-minute “Ticket out the Door.”
If you are interested in how I use this in my classroom, check out my resources that go with this powerpoint.
