Product Description
Non-fiction and Poetry Pairing
The poem, “Pity the Beautiful,” by Dana Gioia, and excerpt of the article, “A Bad Girl with a Touch of Genius” by Guy Trebay.

The activities in this packet were created expressly for the pair of texts that can be accessed free of charge from the N.Y. Times Learning Blog:http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/15/poetry-pairing-the-beautiful-and-the-bad/

Students will use Pre-AP strategies to analyze the diction, details, and images used in each text to compare and contrast the way in which the writers develop the theme/main idea.

There are ten pages of rigorous, highly engaging CCSS-aligned activities which include a Pre-AP foundation quick review lesson, anticipatory set (quick write), pre-reading connotation categorization, graphic organizers focusing on uses of connotative diction and detail, SOAPS analysis chart with guiding questions, and theme/main idea analysis paragraph frame.
