Product Description
This is a completed analysis of Maya Angelou's poem "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." It has been analyzed using the TPCASTT method, which encompasses analysis of the title, a complete paraphrase of the poem, a thorough analysis of all literary and poetic devices in the poem, an examination of the attitude or tone of the poem, searching for important turning points in the poem, and coming to a thematic conclusion about the poem's meaning.

This is designed for grade 9 or 10. It is an accompaniment to my poetry unit, and is best used alongside my Poetry Analysis Slideshow, wherein the TPCASTT method is explained.

IMPORTANT: In order to use see all the commentary on the poetic and literary devices in the poem, be sure that Microsoft Word is set so that you can see added comments.
