By now you should have both of your November journals completed, and I will collect them when we return to in-person learning. Hopefully, this will be soon!
Today, we are going to begin our Poetry Unit. Before I assign your poetry project, I would like to have you read some notes on poetry terms and devices. Some of this material will be a review of information you’ve already learned, and some of it may be new to you. Unfortunately, I was unable to post the PowerPoints on my Teacher Page today, but you will find them on Teams under "Files."
Read the notes in the following order:
- 1. Poetry Notes
- 2. The Language of Poetry
- 3. The Sound of Poetry
- 4. Rhythm
- 5. Rhyme Activities
Just spend the class reading through the five PowerPoints and reach out if you have any questions. I hope you enjoy the rhyme scheme activity.
Thanks, and have a great day!
Important Note: It is absolutely necessary that you go onto Teams each day at the beginning of English class and send me a notification. This will inform me that you have seen the day’s assignment(s) and I will be able to record your attendance.
