On Thursday , we left off with the class writing a “Love Poem”….the class generated both the ideas that makes a good love poem as well as the criteria for this poem. It would be nice to hear some of these poems!
-We will look at a picture of two roads going into two different directions and first write our personal thoughts on the picture then discuss the possible meaning of the photo.
-Read aloud the poem “The Road Not Taken” …first write down your own personal thoughts on the poem, then we will share and discuss our thoughts on the poem.
-We will create a three column chart:
|“The Road Not Taken”||Compare/Contrast||“If”|
you will need 7 additional rows. Each row is going to represent a number on our “Analyzing Poetry” Sheet…which is numbered 1-7. You will go through the analyzing poetry sheet doing the analysis for “The Road Not Taken”. Tomorrow we will read, discuss and analyze the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling.
*Reminder: Our Poetry Terms Quiz is this Thursday October 29th.
