Poetry is one of the most powerful supplementary texts available to teachers and also one of the most nerve-wracking and frightening things to teach. In this video, I share a combination of techniques: the Big Six analysis tool, pairing poetry with Essential Question based and genre-based units to help teachers feel confident teaching poetry.
The poem we walk through in this video is called "Prayer for the Mutilated World" by poet Sam Sax. I will share with you exactly how I'd teach it to students, what comments I'd make, the details that I find to be important to stop for, and highlight two elements of The Big Six that I would focus on.
