LHS English 1 Poetry

January 17, 2017

English 1 students are currently studying poetry. So far students have studied great poets such as Walt Whitman and Robert Frost. This week we are taking a look at two “POE”ms by Edgar Allan Poe, the Raven and Annabel Lee.  Students are learning to identify rhyme scheme, internal rhyme, repetition, alliteration, consonance, assonance, metaphor, simile, imagery and more in these poems. It has been wonderful to see students tap into their creative side and write a couple poems of their own as well! If you have a student in English 1, ask them to show you one of their original poems!
