Product Description
Whether used as a parallel text when teaching a coming-of-age novel or as part of a larger poetry unit, "Fifteen" by William Stafford is a rich poem that is relevant to teens. This literary analysis assignment is differentiated in two ways, targeting the learning preferences of all students. First, three sets of literary analysis questions, focusing on conflict, word choice, inferential thinking, poetic devices, and text-to-self connections, are geared toward student ability levels.

* = basic
** = proficient
*** = advanced

Second, students select a project that focuses on the poem's "plot" and theme, based on their learning preferences--creative, analytical, or practical.

Tailored to individual student needs and preferences, this assignment is an engaging way to encourage students to dig deeply into a poem.

Answer keys and grading checklists are included.
