**COMMON CORE ALIGNED**
This packet is essential with any poetry unit. Copy the cover page on cardstock, and for every poem you will study, copy a set of pages 2-3. Use this to create a poetry analysis packet for each of your students!
The analysis page asks the students to determine the type of poem, identify the theme of the poem, paraphrase a portion of the poem, add their comments after each of three readings of the poem, and finally pull out four different poetic devices from the poem.
If this same process is used for a number of poems, students become quite competent in their analysis.
