This poetry assignment has students analyze a poem of their choice. They are to look for different elements within the poem, including figurative language, rhyme scheme, form, imagery, meaning, etc. Students are then to compare and contrast the poem they analyzed to another student's selected poem. This assignment is most effective at the end of a poetry unit once students have already learned different poetic elements and terms. This teaching tool was written by Jessica Jung.
