Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Parodies - Section 2: Reading


I had students read this parody together, so that we could stop and see the relationships between this narrative poem and other narratives drawing on their background knowledge.  This discussion enabled them to share how the various poetic devices are having an impact upon the story development and humor.  Tomorrow they will be writing an analysis of their group  parody and explaining the effect of poetic devices on it.
