Humorous Poetry Close Reading KitGrades 7–8
The Humorous Poetry Close Reading Kit is designed to help students analyze and make connections between two poems with similar themes. This engaging, close reading lesson plan will encourage middle schoolers (who normally balk at the prospect of reading poetry) to:
- Analyze two complex poems about a similar topic
- Complete multiple reads of each text
- Practice their annotating skills
- Answer increasingly difficult text-dependent questions
- Reflect, write, and make connections across texts
