"On Turning Ten": A Close Reading of Billy Collins' Coming-of Age Poem

"On Turning Ten": A Close Reading of Billy Collins' Coming-of Age Poem
Product Description
This is such an utterly charming poem and so much fun for students - middle or high school! Only upon a second reading do you see how well Collins gets the growing up process - the costs and benefits. The tongue-and-cheek humor is so important for students to understand. We don't address humor enough in English classes, and yet it is critical that students understand when a writer is pulling their leg and how! This handout has the poem in an easy-to-read font, suitable for printing. The second page guides students toward a close reading. There is a writing prompt as well: a paragraph or a poem.
