Week 05: CAD Poetry

Wednesday: How to Read a Poem

Today we SIFT/SQUID the poem “Teacher” by Carol Ann Duffy.  The result was a bunch of notes and what is, hopefully, a workable thesis to start a IOC.

Also, you met Ms. Macdonell today.  She and I will be splitting the class for the poetry unit and we will continue to split you for the FOAs that need to start ASAP.

Assignment: SIFT/SQUID the poem “Head of English” by CAD and create a thesis like we did in class today.

Today we split into Team Johnson and Team Macdonell to work on poetry in smaller groups.

We also worked to start understanding the STYLE of CAD as a poet.  We are starting to see some of the elements that are consistent across her poetry that makes her, her.
