Product Description
Students will write a SHORT ESSAY RESPONSE that establishes a clearly and strongly stated opinion (thesis) related to the theme of the poem, followed by illustrative examples from the text, explanatory and interpretive commentary, and a broader conclusion/overview of the original opinion. The MULTIPLE EXTENSION EXERCISES call for students to write a POEM, A WHIMSICAL ADVERTISEMENT for a friend with specific character traits, and a FICTION STORY about friendship. The exercises are designed to elicit different styles of writing--from formal to figurative--and to evoke analogous thoughts and introspective analysis.
