G9: Poetry

Today began an exciting new unit on poetry!  This is the year when we begin to learn how to analyse poetry, and when we learn to think in a new, creative, subtle way.  I can’t wait for it!  It’s like a treasure hunt– we read a poem and then together, we dig out all the gold.  If you want to know what’s going on for this unit, check out the unit overview: Poetry Overview.

If you enjoyed today’s poem as much as I did, Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou, here is the clip we watched of her reading the poem:

This is also a reminder that your indie reading and interview questions are due on Monday, don’t forget!  Parents, I look forward to seeing you at conferences on Friday.
