Product Description
This is a short, but thorough quiz to give to assess if students are comprehending meaning in poetry along with recognizing poetic devices, knowing how to analyze and annotate, and explaining the impact of words and phrases.

I like using this quiz when I want to quickly determine what my students know and don't know. This can be used as a pre-assessment, mid-assessment, or post-assessment.

"Dream Deferred" is only 11 lines long, but it is PACKED with information for your students to dissect!

There are 7 questions including one that prompts students to annotate the entire poem, line-by-line. The other questions focus on poetic devices and impact/meaning.

CCSS aligned and meant for 9-12 grade!
