Comparing Poems

Found in: language arts & literature; poetry

In our school, students often read and write poetry, but some standardized tests now require students to compare poems. So we read a poem a day or week depending on schedules. We talk about the feelings inspired by the poem. Then we can compare it to poems we read previously. I also use Shel Silverstein and other big poets to read aloud. We don't always compare but by the middle of the year, students are usually pretty good at deciphering the feelings and comparing two poems.
