How are human emotions and feelings connected with “darkness”? After briefly reviewing the rules for annotating poetry, 12th grade students will be introduced to a poetry unit focusing on the theme of darkness. Students will study the literary element, symbolism, in order to gain a deeper understanding of Robert Frost’s “Acquainted with the Night”. Students will then read and annotate Frost’s poem in order to engage in effective discussions about the symbolic meaning of “the night”. The lesson will include reading, annotating, speaking, listening, writing, and class discussion.

Students will study the literary element, diction, in order to gain a deeper understanding of Emily Dickinson’s “We Grow Accustomed to the Dark.” After reading and discussing the poem, students will work in pairs and replace all of the capitalized words with words of their choice. Based on the words the students replaced, the students will observe the impact of diction in poetry and engage in effective discussions about Dickinson’s word choice. The lesson will include reading, annotating, speaking, listening, writing, and class discussion.

Students will study the literary element, simile, in order to gain a deeper understanding of Arthur Symons, “Isolation.” Students will come up with their own similes and then read and annotate Symons’ poem in order to engage in effective discussions about the similes within the poem. The lesson will include reading, annotating, note-taking, writing, speaking, and listening.

Students will study the literary element, imagery, in order to gain a deeper understanding of Emily Bronte’s “Night is Darkening Around Me.” Students will then read and annotate Bronte’s poem in order to engage in effective discussions about Bronte’s use of imagery. The lesson will include reading, speaking, listening, annotating, note-taking, and class discussion.

Alfred Prufrock.” Students will first, listen to the poem and then read it on their own, highlighting examples of allusion. Students will engage in effective discussions about the impact and significance of Elliot’s allusions.
