This is an amazing activity designed to get your language learners to work together to analyze and discuss any piece of poetry you are reading. The Talk, Read, Talk, Write strategy is based on the principles of Nancy Motley's book, Talk, Read, Talk, Write.
The strategy is great for all students, including all levels of language learners. This is an editable PowerPoint. All you need to do is select a poem and a writing prompt (I provide 5, but you could always change/adjust as needed). I've also provided sentence starters to help your lower level ELLs complete the written response.
