Use this resource as deep practice in preparation for the 9th or 10th grade ELAR STAAR exam. The resource can either be used as a quick warm-up or as an anchor text for further reading. The resource will guide students through a quick read over Theodore Roethke's poem "My Papa's Waltz." Have students use the graphic organizer to pull meaning from the diction and imagery. After students work their way through the text, students are then given a STAAR style deep practice question to answer.
