Reflection: Lesson Planning Analyzing Poetry to Create our Own - Section 1: Lesson Opener


As my student's writing teacher, I did had them do a surface level analysis of poetry in order to see the author's craft moves vs. the meaning. Their reading teacher had already taught them how to analyze poetry while I was teaching them to write it. 

Teaching analysis of poetry is very important and if I was their only Language Arts teacher I would have used something like TP Cast Form and this Power Point TPCAST-1 in order for students to understand the deeper meaning of poetry. HUGE shout out to Mary Lynch who gave me the TP-CAST resources.
