This is a step by step guide to aid in the analysis of poetry. This product follows the TPCASTT model for poetry analysis. This guide is 3 pages long and walks students slowly through TPCASTT. This is designed to be used with any poem.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! I have taught TPCASTT for many years in my classroom. I usually start with my TPCASTT foldable, and then guide them through using it with a simple poem. I then send them on their way using it for analysis, however my students usually forget what is involved with each step. After trying many ways to help them internalize the process, I finally came up with this product and it has worked like a charm!
After teaching them the steps with a foldable we now work through this worksheet, it helps remind them what is involved with TPCASTT and gives them the exact step by step that I expect. They are now able to analyze a poem without individual guidance from me. After analyzing several poems, students then work without the guide. I have found greater success moving to this stage when we start with this product.
