This PDF file includes the following:
• A close reading graphic organizer with room to annotate text and paraphrase stanzas
• Four common core-aligned, open-ended questions, varying in level of difficulty
• A TP-CASTT analysis graphic organizer for extension activities
Depending on the level of your students, you can choose which of these organizers to use (even differentiate your lessons and use both!) The questions can also be used as an assessment. This guide can make a challenging poem easier for middle school students.
