WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THESE ASSIGNMENTS 

♥ This is awesome! It's so comprehensive - like all of your stuff. I can't wait to use these for my English classes... Maybe as a poem of the week? :-) 

♥ This is a great resource and will be very useful to teach middle school students how to approach poetry. Thx! 

♥ Used this resource with my grade nine English class. Went very well. Thank you.

♥ This was excellent for walking students through a close reading and analysis of poetry. The poem choice was excellent for comparative purposes to link thematically.
