PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

At its heart a close reading activity, this Rich Bits of Lit trial makes students examine a particular word in a poem. The defendant in this trial is the word itself (played by a student), defending its use within the poem. The prosecution will try to establish that another word could have taken its place. This activity works with any poem, and you can choose which words you want students to examine. It allows students to question why the poet used particular words. What you will download are the instructions you could hand out to students. This usually takes 1 class period of preparation and 1 class period for the trial(s), depending on how many words you are examining.
