Reflection: Student Ownership Poetry: Introduction - Section 3: Sharing and Summarizing our Findings


     Eliciting emotional responses to the sample poems was easier using the videos of different types of poetry.  Students elaborated on how the tone of the poetry reading by the narrators also affected their responses.  During the Poetry Analysis of the Raven, a student pointed out how spooky it sounded as it elicited a fearful reaction in her.  Students are beginning to understand the moods created by poetry.  This was a great lead in to the importance of reading poetry with the intonation the poet intended.  Students were able to grasp the concept of how poetic devices affect the mood of poems.
