I began the class by going over the comprehension questions from The Silver Swan and
The Rock Pile. I then gave notes on William Wordsworth and we studied his poem titled To Sleep. Students spent the remainder of the time working on their comprehension questions as well as their Type #2 Poem. Great class guys.
I began the class by giving notes on the poet Emily Dickinson. We then studied two of her poems: Autumn and Apparently with No Surprise. Students spent the remainder of the time working on the comprehension questions. The questions are attached.
Students began the class by writing their quiz on literary terms. We corrected this together. I then had students take notes on William Carlos Williams, author of the poem
The Red Wheelbarrow. We studied the poem and I assigned three comprehension
questions for homework. The questions are attached.
