PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes the following:

1. Written lesson plan (includes: warm-up, transition, whole class activity, partner activity, and closing)

2. "Ruining a Poem with Poor Word Choice" Worksheet

This lesson plan uses the poem "This is Just to Say" by William Carlos Williams as well as a parody version of that poem to teach the importance of word choice in poetry. Students will work as a whole class to analyze the original class and then in pairs to complete the worksheet and analyze how the meaning of the original poem changes when synonyms for the original text are used instead.

This lesson is the eighth in a 10 lesson unit, which serves as an introduction to poetry and a thematic introduction to the novel "To Kill a Mockingbird." The other lessons in this unit can be bought separately or you can purchase the entire unit as a whole from The Booklover and The Teacher store.
