…Get to know it VERY well. Here is what you need to do for section three of your scrapbook.
1. Find a buddy/partner (or a couple of buddies/partners) that you can trust and depend on. You can monitor each other to stay on track!
2. Search for and find a poem that is officially published by an actual author/poet. The poem must be ten or more lines in length and display at least three poetic devices. Please avoid anonymous blog poems, things that are not in English, song lyrics or stuff that is obviously not poetry. This must be a poem that you have not already used in section two of your scrapbook.
3. IN WRITING: include a printed copy of your chosen piece in section three of your scrapbook. On this copy, you will HIGHLIGHT and LABEL the poetic devices that exist. In a separate typed piece of writing, discuss or describe the devices used, as well as the theme of the poem, pointing out examples of your idea.
4. SPOKEN: You will MEMORIZE and RECITE the poem to the class in a audible, clear voice. Please include the poet’s name and when the poem was written or published. You must MAKE A TRANSPARENCY so that everyone can see the poem while you analyze (point out) the poetic devices used in the poem. Describe or discuss the devices used, and explain your thoughts as to the theme of the poem, pointing out examples to support your idea. PLEASE, NO NOTES.
THIS WILL HAPPEN ON Thursday 6/11
