Hopefully, everyone is finding things to do to stay busy indoors. Or maybe you’re spending winter time with your families?
1. Do your regular warm up.
2. We’ve looked at some classic poets. Consider who the poets are writing poetry TODAY. Like yesterday, let’s explore a few of those. We’ll follow the same “close read” structure we did in class:
–First reading, then discuss (maybe with a brother or sister or a friend or parent)
–Second reading, then write–note what you think the poem MEANS (theme)
–Third reading, then write–POST a comment about the poet and what you think his or her message is. Don’t forget to include the author and title.
