Students will choose a variety of poems to analyze on their own. The focus is on how Poetic Devices create a pattern in the words and form the basis for understanding the overall Tone and Symbolism. Students then create a conclusion about the Thematic value of each poem (universal truth, philosophical implications, practicality).
A basic understanding of Poetic Devices is needed before this project can be done. Check out my Literary Device Quiz :)
An example is provided to guide how the work should be completed. There is also a rubric to help assess student work.
