Product Description
EXPLORE POETIC DEVICES & ANALYZE POETRY OR SONGS WITH THIS CHOICE-DRIVEN PROJECT. Begin with a poetry foldable on essential poetry terms that every budding poet must know.

Students will then work through a Socratic debate centered around the question: What make a poem popular? To prepare for the debate, students will read an article on the subject and them follow the criteria to dissect and compare Billy Collins' "Introduction to Poetry" Eve Merriam's "How to Eat a Poem."

To start the project, student will engage in a lesson on theme and find 4 poems that unite through a theme. Then, students will complete the project by finding examples of poetry terms from poems that align with their chosen themes. For the project, two versions are supplied to allow differentiation. The project can be done with songs, poems, or a combination of both.
