Product Description
During a poetry unit, provide students with a selection of poems that can be used for this activity. Due to the in-depth analysis required, I would recommend poems that are at least two stanzas but no more than two pages in length. Students will use one page for each poem they analyze -- the document has four pages, but can be shortened if desired. They will read the selected poem four times. Each time they will write a line that stood out to them and complete the activity to the right. Reading 1 asks them to make meaning from the first time through (it's okay to be wrong). Reading 2 focuses on language and structure and what they notice. Reading 3 involves drawing an illustration of something they are visualizing while reading. Finally, reading 4 should ask them to make meaning again, but this time they have four readings of the poem to improve their original thoughts. The line should be a direct quotation from the poem and should compliment what they write on the right side. I have also encouraged students to pick a different line for each reading.
