This versatile, generic poem response form will be a valuable addition to any middle school teacher's toolkit for poetry. Useful for a whole class assignment, partner discussion, homework, a center, extra challenge, or early finishers. Great for free choice selections or extra credit. 2-page form covers background, content, style/poetic devices, theme, vocabulary, personal reaction and more. Brief but detailed questions require explanations, quotes, interpretation, and other text supports.
Includes a short assessment checklist for quick teacher grading and/or student self-evaluation. Teacher suggestions for use and modifications plus Common Core Standards are also included. This time-saving necessity will enrich your poetry instruction.
