Reflection: Modeling Sound Devices - Poetry Lesson 3 - Section 3: Independent Work


This is a great poem to bring out the power of word choice.  Lewis Carroll made up many of these words yet they still have impact and meaning due to those around them and the overall feeling created by the poem.

When you read this poem for the class model your thinking. For example, we do not know what a Jabberwock is but can infer that it is dragon-like and scary.  We do not know what "gallumphing" is but we know it's a happy movement. This is valuable conversation that connects the dots together between today's work and yesterdays or the day before.
