A variety of poems on several reading levels allows you to customize this activity to fit your students’ needs! Students can analyze poems on their individual reading levels, or you can start with simpler poems and progress to more challenging poems! You also have enough poems to start this activity as a whole class, then transition to small groups, pairs, and finally individual work.
