Product Description
Using Carol Ann Duffy’s poem, "War Photographer”, students will review important poetic devices, close read and annotate poems, and view supporting video clips. This lesson prepares students for AP Literature and Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, the SAT essay and critical thinking activities. The poem can be used when discussing a classic war novel such as The Things They Carried, The Red Badge of Courage, or All Quiet on The Western Front—or it can be taught independently in a poetry unit.

In this resource there is a unique detailed rubric that can be used to score Socratic Seminars in a way that encourages organic fluid discussions. In the guide there is a step by step explanation on how to conduct a fish-bowl discussion with the rubric. The Socratic seminar acts as a poetry explication. The packet includes a complete lesson, common core standards, essential and key questions, links to video clips and resources. All lessons have an opening, work session, and closing structure.

Key words: poetry explication, British Literature, Socratic Seminar, writing, poetry, AP Literature, critical thinking, Carol Anne Duffy, annotations, literary devices, War, photography, Ted Talks, Apocalypse Now
