  • Use this in a unit about growing up or growing old

Classroom Considerations

  • Because the questions are just listed on the page, and one question includes a typo, you may wish to create your own worksheet to accompany the text (with edited questions)

  • Includes a copy of the poem
  • Provided questions require close reading and higher-level thinking 

  • The first question says people instead of poem
