Illuminated Poetry

Robert Frost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay" serves as a model for a poetry analysis activity. The whole class critiques the sample and then groups select a poem and prepare a PowerPoint presentation in which they illustrate how their poet uses literary devices to develop themes. Included in the packet are project tips, alternative approaches, and links to all materials. A great way to incorporate technology into an ELA class.
