This handout and lesson plans will empower your student to understand the elements of poetry and how they function to create meaning in a poem.
Now included in this resource are a ready-to-go quiz, a jigsaw activity for teaching the content, and an alternative poster project for teaching the content including a rubric to grade the project.
This is a great tool for new common core and SAT writing where students are required to do more than just identify elements of literature.
Introduce a poetry unit or a single poem with this list, or use it for your own reference!
The explanations and tips are practical, useful, and based on over fifteen years teaching poetry including Advanced Placement Literature.
"THIS IS AWESOME! It is such a challenge to get students to move from identifying an element to being able to explain what that element is doing. Your product is exactly what I needed to help students do exactly that!"--Hope S.
