"In a Station of the Metro" Poetry Lesson

Supporting document included
This is an additional download that supports the video.
This quick video will explain everything you need to know to teach Ezra Pound's "In a Station of the Metro" to high school students. It gives a brief recap of Imagism and talks through a study of the poem. I've also given the poem a score on the following factors, each of which I explain in detail in the video:
- Difficulty
- Intrigue Level
- Poetic Elements
- Relatability

This video comes with an identical powerpoint for your use in the classroom. In only 6 minutes you will be ready to teach "In a Station of the Metro" to high school students!

For a free preview of this kind of video lesson please access my poem video on Seamus Heaney's "The Forge", which I offer for free!
