Reading Poetry: "love is a place" by E. E. Cummings

This Reading Poetry: "love is a place" by E. E. Cummings lesson plan also includes:

Show your class how to read, and analyze poetry through the rules of grammar as you explore “love is a place” by E.E. Cummings. Some might consider this plan overbearing and beating poetry to death, which might be true, if you do all of the activities. However, the plan offers a unique way to show young learners how to read closely and deeply. The guided worksheet moves readers through the poem and has them analyze the literary devices, syntax, and grammar of the poem in search of meaning. A little part of this resource would go a long way.
