Product Description
In a resource where students practice analyzing poetry, students learn to write more profoundly by analyzing poetry from Richard Wilbur who wrote “The Juggler.” The students will read a New York Times essay on the poet. Students will show mastery of the standards at the end of the lesson through a SIFT Analysis, a Socratic seminar, and a written poetry analysis timed essay scored on an AP style rubric.

A TED TALK, “Juggling: The power of ups and downs,” by Paul Miller is used in this resource, as are links to different NPR, paintings, and videos showing the life of a juggler. There are links to see samples of the 2016 AP English Literature essay based on analyzing the poem, “The Juggler.” There is a framed thesis designed to help students construct a thesis.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities.

There are sources for teaching the Socratic Seminar, as the lessons act as an explication for the argument. The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions.
