I love teaching poetry, and I like to make sure students are given a lot of different ways to engage with a poem. This step-by-step process allows students to look at a poem from multiple angles and means of interpretation, allowing them to go beyond plot recap and the basic efforts at scansion that can turn poetry into a lesson in math!
The handout is designed to be used as an in-class workshop with student teams helping one another, but it can also be assigned as homework or as the first step in drafting a poetry essay.
