Yesterday we started a chart to help us analyze two poems “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost and “If” by Rudyard Kipling.
|“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.
-Today we will read through, discuss and analyze “If” by Rudyard Kipling. You will need to add “If’ to our charts going through “Analyzing poetry”. Remember…Just like “The Road Not Taken” you will need to research the context behind the meaning of this poem…..
-once the two poems have been analyzed you will need to go through each category (1-7) looking for similarities and differences (compare/contrast…middle column).
-as a class we will generate essay topics.
