Product Description
Emily Dicikinson Poetry lesson covers 3 days of Dickinson's poems with activities.

Day 1 - Students rotate through 8 stations. At each station, they read a short poem followed by 3 or 4 questions relating to that poem. This way students are exposed to 8 of her short poems. An exit ticket is also included.

Day 2 - Each student receives a longer Dickinson poem, and each one makes an imagery pennant using images from the poem. Then, students write an explanation of the poem, the poetic elements used in the poem, the theme, and their choice of images for the pennant. Students write these on a lined pennant. Both lined and unlined pennant templates needed for this activity are included. There are 10 poems for this task so that students can be exposed to a wide range of poems by Emily Dickinson. Each student chooses only one, but they will be exposed to all of them in the next day's lesson.

Day 3 - Students get with others who had the same poem to discuss it. Then, they present their poem to the class and explain the information on their pennants. Next, students must decide on the stylistic elements that characterize Dickinson's poetry. They will read 4 poems by authors and decide which two are Dickinson's. Students must explain their reasoning. This really makes them think and analyze style while also applying their learning!

Also included are bell ringers for each day.

These lessons require students to think critically and creatively, analyze poetry, collaborate with others, observe stylistic elements, and enjoy their learning. They will walk away with a lot of knowledge about Emily Dickinson's poetry because they will be exposed to many of her poems.
