Product Description
When they complete this poetry lesson on Adrienne Rich's poem "Diving Into the Wreck," students will feel empowered to comprehend this approachable yet profound text.

No lecture, no power point—this is all student-centered, rigorous analysis of poetic elements and big ideas. When your students explore Adrienne Rich's extended metaphor of deep-sea diving they will also be writing, thinking, and analyzing abstract concepts such as self-exploration, dealing with the past, the scars of trauma, and the process of turning pain into art. Additionally, the scaffolding in the questions makes the text accessible to students of all levels.

This handout of thorough and precise questions is ready to go with minimal prep on the part of the teacher. There are also prompts for in-class writing as well as for longer assessment.

This poem could be paired with any text that deals with the past, painful memories, self-exploration, art or the artist, the self and knowledge of the self, transformations or changes, loss or death. Suggestions include: Hamlet, MacBeth, King Lear, stories or poems of Edgar Allen Poe, Frankenstein, Death of a Salesman, and The Great Gatsby.

Because of copyright issues, a copy of the poem is not included in the packet.
