Product Description
Students will analyze the extended metaphor in this famous little poem. They will determine the theme, determine the tone, and use evidence from the text to answer questions. Students also connect to the text by thinking of times when it would be appropriate to share this poem with someone else.

Teaching tip: I have my students use this text as a "model text" where they must write their own poem using the same structure as Dickinson's. It must use an extended metaphor to define an abstract emotion (fear, anger, joy, peace, etc.) Their poem must be 3 stanzas and use the same rhyme scheme as Dickinson's poem, too. They like sharing these extended metaphor poems with one another.
