Product Description
Use “Miniver Cheevy,” Edwin Arlington Robinson’s famous tale of the man crippled by his love of the past, to teach your students the elements of poetry analysis.

Begin with a reading of the poem from the attractive, modern-designed handout of the work that includes helpful footnotes and space on the page for close reading annotations. After students have completed a close reading of the poem, then hand out copies of the question worksheet, which features eleven short answer depth-of-knowledge questions that will require students to dig back into the text of the poem as well as their own minds to find the answers. Finally, after students have finished answering the questions, launch a full-class discussion of the answers; the detailed answer key included in the lesson materials will not only ease your grading, but also can be used as a helpful discussion-starter.

This lesson will take 45 minutes to complete and can easily be folded into ANY poetry unit or American literature class. Fully contained and would work as an emergency sub plan, too!

Designed for advanced middle school and high school students.
