Poetry test is today. It’s 44 multiple choice questions about everything we’ve covered in length.
After the test you’ll have time to work on your introductions to your poem(s). Somethings to include:
-Title and author (mandatory for all poems)
-Why you chose it (say more than, “I don’t know, I just really like it.”)
-Any techniques that we’ve studied that stick out (“Note the extreme alliteration in the 3rd stanza.”)
-What it means to you (This poem got me through a tough breakup)
***Remember, “I don’t know” or “just because” are not interesting points to make during your introduction!
