Good Afternoon,

*Silent Reading

* Poetry analysis:  we have been working on analyzing five poems in groups.  You will have a few minutes to finish your analysis and then each group will explain one of their poems to the class.  After this, your groups document is to be posted onto the discussion board on Teams.

This lesson is about learning rhythm and scansion.  It is usually a harder topic to learn.  It is regarding how to learn iambic pentameter or trochaic tetrameter for example.

“Casey at the Bat”:  please read the poem on the first link.  After you read the poem, you can watch the two attached cartoons below.  After, you can work on the questions attached to the poem on the first link.  The second link is an additional resource.
