Product Description
I love this short poetry unit. This product allows students to be in charge of one stanza of this classic poem. They paraphrase their stanza, analyze its literary elements and explain the challenging vocabulary.

Between the artistic elements of the poster and the somewhat "grisly" nature of the poem, middle school students are quite engaged with this assignment.

I've used it with both 6th and 8th graders to see poetic devices. I've also attached an add-on assignment in which students practice reading poetry fluently.
