This project is one in which students must choose a poem and analyze it for the many poetic devices that we cover. It could be adapted to meet the needs of any grade level. This project includes skills in annotation, close reading, analysis, and public speaking.
I have included rubrics for both the written analysis and the oral presentation, which can be altered to meet your needs!
The included "poetry analysis guide" walks students through annotating and analyzing a poem.
I use a Smart board and have a document camera, which is wonderful for allowing students to share their annotations with the class as they "teach" their classmates their selected poem.
This project can be done on an individual basis or in groups/pairs. It's up to you!
