Product Description
My students read The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, so analyzing the poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost is a natural extension to our discussion of the novel. Even if your students don’t read the novel, the poem is a wonderful opportunity for students to analyze poetry and write poems of their own. This is a wonderful poem to teach any time of year – especially in spring when students can see Nature’s first gold!

I like to use this poem to practice paraphrasing and examining tone. I use “DIDLS” (Diction, Imagery, Details, Language, Syntax) to analyze tone. The questions that accompany both the poem and the poem's importance to the novel include higher order thinking skills (HOTS).

With this lesson, you may pick the sections that apply to your students.
