Comparing two poems...ugh...sort of...

Ok yesterday I taught some poetry and it wasn't that bad. I can do it for another day. One day at a time right? If I can do it you can do it. Today is going to be even better because I'm going to make you do all the work. (I love it when that happens.)

Your task: (With your group)
  1. Take another look at the two poems we looked at yesterday. Mushrooms and A slender fellow in the grass.
  2. Find something you think these two poems have in common. (They have more than one thing in common so you have choices here. Make a list before you choose.)
  3. Find three other poems that have the same feature. (Poems you don't hate would be good.)
  4. Create a presentation to share these three poems with the class. (Hint: GD...New...Presentation...Share it with group.) Decide who will read each part and what you want to say.
  5. Find a visual (picture) to go with each poem you present.

Wow, that was fun (for me). Now I have to go find that Google Form I use when you are grading each other's presentations. Get to work people.
