In which I offer some advice on pairing students., and  reflect on vocabulary as a lesson component. In retrospect, regarding the student's understanding of Pallas, I should have asked her to think it out more than I did, and not provided the answer immediately.

The Poetry of Poe: Rhythmic Ravens

Unit 8: Literacy: Brooding, Dark and Gothic Poetry and Short Stories (Romanticism Part II)
Lesson 3 of 6

Objective: SWBAT analyze the impact of word choice--particularly poetic devices--on tone and meaning by explicating Poe's "The Raven" in pairs.

Big Idea: Auditory devices such as alliteration, assonance, consonance, and a variety of rhyme create the atmosphere of Poe's poetry; students are exploring this atmosphere in their explication.
