PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you are searching for a tried and true method to help your students analyze and understand poetry, then look no further!

TP-CASTT is a systematic method of poetry analysis that helps students access poetry and enjoy it. TP-CASTT is a best practice activity used in AP and Pre-AP ELA courses but can easily be used with students at any level. TP-CASTT stands for: title, paraphrase, connotation, attitude, shift, title, and theme.

Incuded in this product:
1. A 52-slide Prezi that introduces students to the TP-CASTT method and walks them through a sample analysis using the first stanza of Walt Whitman’s, “O Captain! My Captain!”
2. A PDF student handout laying out the TP-CASTT format with key questions.
3. A PDF copy of the analysis of “O Captain! My Captain!” covered in the Prezi.
4. A PDF copy of the poem “O Captain! My Captain!” and an editable Microsoft Word TP-CASTT template. These two copies are great for students to use for annotation and notetaking while viewing the Prezi.

Check out my annotation and analysis of ”O Captain! My Captain!” for a detailed analysis of the ENTIRE poem.
