This product is a one-page guide for students to use color to annotate poetry. It is meant as a reference sheet for students to use throughout the unit to practice noticing different elements of poetry. The use of color makes will help engage students with the often low-interest activity of annotating.
- A one-page reference sheet for annotating poetry using a variety of colors
I give this handout to students early in our poetry unit to use as a reference throughout the unit. Students enjoy the use of different colors, and the guide forces students to think through and recognize several key elements of poetry as they look at a poem.
This product pairs well with the Poetry Analysis Sketch Notes.
