This is a research project that is focused on the analysis of poetry. Students are asked to analyze poetry from the Renaissance or Romantic period. They get student choice in deciding which poems to analyze, and they are required to use research to substantiate their claims. They may also make a counterclaim to various interpretations of their chosen poem. There is no rubric, but there can certainly be one. At this point in the AP class, the students are aware of the quality of writing I expect from them. This is in Word format and can be modified to suit your needs.
