Reflection: Student Ownership Poetry Review - Section 3: Poetry Analysis


     Students showed ability to think critically when they identified and analyzed poetic devices used in Daffodils.  The Poetry Analysis matrix guided students in this process.  However, some students were able to go beyond these guidelines and demonstrate divergent thinking skills.  One student discussed her interpretation of Daffodils by analyzing its figurative meaning (daffodilfigurative). Her interpretation is that one should take time to enjoy nature, because one day it will be taken away from us.
