PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I use this worksheet as part of a minilesson in my 8th grade poetry unit. Since "The Jabberwocky" is a nonsense poem it is great for allowing students to interpret the poem in their own individual way. I read through the poem first, then I show a couple youtube videos of other readings, as well as illustrations people have created of the Jabberwocky. Another great resource is the book Jabberwocky by Christopher Myers. It depicts the monster as a huge basketball player, which is a creative interpretation. We discuss the poem and what the various nonsense words might mean. Then I model interpreting the poem with the first stanza. Finally, students complete the worksheet by interpreting the rest of the poem in a way that is meaningful to them. After that, I ask them to create an illustration of the monster from the poem.
