We talked about it some at the beginning

We talked about it some at the beginning of the semester, but what do you already know about poetry? Why is it important that we review poetry? You are 100% guaranteed to have to read and analyze at least one poem on your NCFE Poetry isnt hard when you know how to approach it There are some very specific aspects to look for in poetry and a specific approach that

will help you easily (and painlessly) break down and understand poems. How do we effectively analyze poetry? Aspects to know and consider: Diction/Syntax: the kind of language used/the kind of grammar used Form: the rules followed that determine the poems shape (sonnet, haiku, epic, couplet, free verse) Style: the various choices that the author makes to develop the poem (includes tone/mood)

Plot: the storyline this often gets overlooked with poetry Imagery: language that utilizes the five senses to produce meaning Useful Method for Analysis: The SOAPSTone method:

S: Speaker O: Occasion A: Audience P: Purpose S: Subject Tone This method helps when trying to grasp the overall meaning and purpose of a poem, and can make analyzing the other aspects (on left) much easier to do. Lets practice!

Using the poem handed to you, practice using the SOAPSTone method to gauge the overall meaning of the poem. Then analyze it for the other qualities discussed. Annotate the page as you read, and make notes in the margins for the qualities that you discover. Poetry as images As I read the poem to you, draw whatever image comes to your mind just from the words. Dont get too hung up on the words that you dont know simply focus right now on the

images that it evokes After: Now, read the poem for yourself, and write down the plot of the poem, the style, and your best guess for the definition of any unknown words using context clues. Also circle or highlight any clues that it gives for tone, mood, imagery, or theme. You Try! All authors start with some form of inspiration. Use the image to the

right, create your own poem. You can create it to be any way that you want (authorial liberty), but think about how to best structure your poem based upon what you are trying to say. *These will be shared with classmates, so work hard!* Trade your poem with a partner Use the SOAPSTone method to analyze your partners poem. Ask them if they are okay with you

writing on their paper. If not, I can give you Sticky Notes to make your notes on. Once you have done that, look for diction, syntax, style, imagery, and the other aspects that we reviewed earlier. This should be completed silently for the first five minutes while you all read and review. Once time is up, you may discuss your notes with your partner to assess whether their purpose was met. After you analyze the poem On the back side of the white paper that you used earlier, create an image that your partners poem evokes in your mind. Poetry is meant to evoke emotions and images in

the reader. After you draw your image, ask your partner if that is what they envisioned while writing Also, come up with one word for tone and one word for mood of the poem, and ask them if that is what emotion they meant for the poem to have/take. Review some of the test questions Now that weve reviewed some methods for analyzing poetry, revisit a few of the test questions from the DE Test to ensure comprehension. These will be turned in as your exit ticket.

PLEASE annotate and mark up the poems as you read them (this only helps you!) Think through each of the answers before you mark one to make sure you are certain of your answer.
