************************************

Greatness is appreciating the layers of poetic word in expressing a complex idea.

A poem crafted to inspire a nation during a time of despair.

A poem which alters how an entire nation remember the facts of its history since.

Take your students through the famous tale Longfellow crafted which turned an obscure man into an America hero, at a time when one was desperately sought in the years leading up to the Civil War. This oft-recited childhood tale evokes a sense of lore and simplicity, yet holds many untruths your students will soon discover.

At the same time, introduce your students to an in-depth, yet easy way in which to examine poetry, using the DECODE method:

Definition

Emotion

Change, continuity, contrast, compare

Outside information

Denotation, connotation

Encapsulate

Included in this complete lesson:

- Lesson overview and detailed step-by-step teacher plans

- “Paul Revere's Ride” text with ample annotating space

- DECODE graphic organizer worksheet

- Suggested teacher keys, both in annotating and graphic organizer formats

- DECODE Poetry Source Analysis handout that works with ANY historical poem
