MAY/JUNE Poetry schedule

We are going to be covering approx. 10 poems (2 still to come and not yet in poetry package) in this unit and will be addressing a variety of forms. Here is a chart of the poems we are to cover is something you will likely want to print for yourself.

It is important that you use your copies of the poems to annotate in pencil as we go through my teaching to the poems AND observations and analysis of the poems by me, you, and your classmates.

There will be a Final Exam for this poetry unit; you will be responsible for ALL of the poems in the provided package in addition to terminology and devices reviewed and taught. There will also be sight passages. The Final Exam will also include a short answer question.
