Product Description
I use these two poems as part of an essay section in an end-of-unit test on Greek Mythology, but this would also work well as a stand-alone activity. Students respond to one of two poems from Gregory Orr's book "Orpheus and Eurydice: A Lyric Sequence" by first identifying the poem's speaker based on clues (somewhat difficult for my students, since there are details that might lead them astray if they are not familiar enough with the myth), then discussing their conclusion in a short essay. Orr's poems are absolutely beautiful and really inspired some great analysis and personal responses from my 8th grade students.
NOTE: The formatting may be slightly off on this file since I work in the newer version of Microsoft Word, but it's nothing a delete button can't handle.
