Good Afternoon!

*We will have 20 minutes or so to finish up our analysis on our five poems:  The Road Not Taken, If, Oh Captain My Captain, I Too Sing America, and Art Reflecting Life.

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.
