Welcome to Poetry (American Lit. & World Lit.)
In this six week class, we will:
become familiar with American and World poets
analyze, interpret, and discuss poetry with the SOAPStone method.
effectively paraphrase poetry to increase understanding.
create, write, and perform original poetry.
evaluate how literary components (tone, symbolism, irony, metaphor, hyperbole, etc) impact meaning.
Throughout the course, we will remember our big ideas:
What is poetry and how do we study it?
Makeup work if you missed a day (remember, you may only make up to three points/class!)
For one makeup point, you must read THREE poems of your choice (see link to makeup poems on left). For EACH poem, write a SOAPStone analysis of poem, a paraphrased paragraph of the poem, AND a detailed paragraph about what the poem means to you.
