In class we will be analyzing poetry specifically from African in this unit. Below you will find the poem we will be reading, and the instructions for the ‘mini project’. I really want you guys to focus on identifying THEME in this assignment… its a very important skill that you still need to practice.
- Read ALL of the poems in the packet.
- Pick ONE poem that you like the most, enjoy the imagery of, or have the strongest reaction to.
- Identify the THEME of that poem.
- PICK ONE of the three options below to complete using the THEME of the poem of your choice:
Option 1: Make a full color pictorial illustration of the theme of your poem.
Option 2: Find a SCHOOL APPROPRIATE song that has the same theme as your poem (bonus if the lyrics are similar too!)
Option 3: Annotate the poem in detail, and explain the theme.
