I have created several templates and activities to address Common Core objectives for analyzing the structure and meaning of poems. I have included printable poems that are listed as Common Core text exemplars. One template is an opinion essay writing prompt that asks students to form and support an opinion about an author's use of literary devices. I have also included book marks with poetry structure check lists that you can keep handy for poetry analysis. There is a hand-out included: Literary Devices Bank with definitions and examples for students to reference as they write original poems.
