This poetry-analysis project includes a printable choice board for students to choose components of their product. MSWord editable versions of both the choice board and the rubric are included with this project so you may edit and adapt these components to meet the instructional needs of your students.
Students draw a horizontal or diagonal line through their choices on the board in order to address different types of thinking through various learning styles. Each product component provides students an opportunity to analyze any poem through a medium that allows expression of creative, analytical, and practical thinking.
You may provide students with a list of poems from which to choose, or this may be an open assignment. I have used this as a culminating assessment after a unit on Romantic Poetry; however, it is suitable for a poetry genre unit.
Assigning This Project to Your Class: I have used this as a culminating project at the end of a poetry unit or near the end of a school year. Prior to assigning this project, I teach students the processes for TP-CASTT and SOAPStone and they have practiced these independently. Provide any of these materials as handouts or models for students, as needed. There are 22 pages of charts, graphic organizers, and models for student and teacher use. See the table of contents in the file preview for what is included.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or questions.
