Product Description
If you love Robert Frost OR are teaching The Outsiders, you know that this little 8-line poem is more dense and interesting than meets the eye! Teach this classic poem in 1 or 2 class periods with a stations activity that promotes small group discussion.

Use up to 9 stations: Figurative Language, Alliteration, Rhyme & Structure, Ask the Teacher, Symbolism, Allusion, Tone & Mood, Theme, and The Outsiders.

Plus, the follow-up quiz is an easy-to-grade assessment that checks for literal understanding AND critical thinking with a mix of question types, including assessing the literary devices that were taught in the stations.

This 17-page download includes…
• The poem
• Teacher's Guide with instructions for use and setup
• Student handout of the stations activity
• Trifold table tents for the 9 stations (with teacher hints and answer keys)
• Quiz and answer key
• Bonus: BOTH the editable version AND the ready-to-print PDF are included!
