Product Description
This is an activity that I use in my AP English Literature class as I am working my way through teaching the TPCASTT poetry analysis tool. The activity provides students practice analyzing figurative elements of poetry by asking them to fill out "sentence stems" with strong analytical verbs, making claims about the meaning of chosen quotes in Thomas Gray's classic poem. Then at the end of the exercise, students reflect on the themes of the poem associated with its portrayal of death and mourning.
