Product Description
Poetry Analysis / Figurative Language / Poetic Devices are the heart of poetry (pun intended). In this resource, your students will become literal surgeons to "dissect" a poem to find the poetic devices used, and how they help the reader understand the poem.

How to use:
Display the poem on the table for student groups to dissect, discuss, and debate the meaning of the poem based on the poetic devices they find.

Students are provided a Surgery Checklist to guide them through the surgery.

Students must:
-Examine the patient thoroughly (read once all the way through)
-Determine the cause of the surgery (discuss the types of poetic devices you will be searching for in the poem)
-Prep for surgery (make sure all materials are at your group’s table):
Each surgeon will need a highlighter, pencil, clipboard, surgery notes, hair cover, and face mask
-Examine each section of the patient to find anything that needs to be extracted (read each stanza looking for poetic devices)

Poetic Devices:
Rhyme
Stanzas
Line Breaks
Repetition
Tone
Mood
Imagery
Onomatopoeia
Simile
Metaphor

I used Firework by Katy Perry, and made a poster size copy of the lyrics, then taped it to a piece of butcher paper cut to the life-size shape of a body. I bought very inexpensive face masks and shower caps to make them feel like real surgeons. They LOVED it....I did too!
