PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This attractively, uncluttered six-page document is a quick and easy way to get your students looking for SOUND DEVICES, IMAGERY and more in a short, seemingly simple, but jam-packed poem.

Students are presented with Tennyson's "The Eagle" (a six-line poem), and asked to locate the sound devices and other literary devices. Each line has at least two devices so there are lots for them to explore and discuss.

Further, students will learn (or review) what PERSONIFICATION is, and there are four accompanying questions which have them discern the difference between personification and metaphor.

Following the first two-page worksheet, is a more probative and challenging set of eight questions. Students will need to do a CLOSE READING and draw SIGNIFICANCE / make meaning from the author's use of the various sound devices and imagery. Senior students can do this on their own, while younger grades will need facilitation.

Students are also asked to REFLECT and create a PERSONAL RESPONSE to the poem, stating which image was particular vivid/powerful for them.

Other terms reviewed in this assignment are TONE, MOOD, RHYME SCHEME, SETTING, and CONTRAST.

Finally, a DETAILED ANSWER KEY is provided to all questions (except for the student's personal response). So, it is a three-page handout for students, with a three-page answer key for teachers.
