These poetry analysis questions and prompts are an excellent modern and engaging activity to have students take ownership of their learning and dig deeper and closely read a poem.
This task card set IS included in my Task Cards Bundle for a Savings: Click Here
These are not cards that prompt students to write a poem or define a term. The questions on these cards correlate directly with not only CCSS anchor standards, but also with higher-level thinking analysis skills. There are so many ways to use task cards in your class, and my students respond well to the interaction.
You can have these ready and pull them out a moment's notice to conduct an amazingly in-depth lesson. Your students will love that they are interactive. You will love that your students are thinking critically and meeting standards. Your admin will love that students are engaged and that you've differentiated your lesson!
28 cards are included along with 4 blank cards for you to adapt to your class!
