The first lesson introduces students to the differences between observations, interpretations, and judgments.
The second lesson teaches students how to identify strands, which is a skill they will need in lesson three.
Lesson three introduces a concrete and specific poetry analysis strategy called The Method. The Method is great for all types of texts but works particularly well with poetry. Students of all ability levels can use The Method to conduct a close reading of a poem (or other text) and gain a deeper understanding.
The fourth lesson teaches students how to effectively summarize a poem as well as analyze the central idea, speaker, and occasion.
