Chapter Five Tasks
Chapter Six Tasks
x Make a powerpoint or some other type of presentation following the TPCASTT method for analysis. Do not put all the information to “copy” on your slides. Like a good teacher, try to incite the class to do some of the analysis with you. Miss Carpenzano will also be there to help.
x Before beginning your presentation, give the class vocabulary and read the poem aloud
x Write a thesis statement on your poem
x Choose an image to represent the poem and explain to us why you chose this image
x At the end of your presentation ask a few questions to “quiz” the class to see if they were listening 🙂
Please do not use the internet to research and copy-paste/plagarize/cheat. It is important that you think about the poem yourselves. It is okay if you do not see everything/do a perfect job. That is what Miss Carpenzano is there to help for.
Also, divide the work evenly between the two people working on the presentation.
You will be graded on:
Quality/efforts of analysis: 10 possible pts
Quality of oral presentation (confidence, reading of poem, tone of voice, easy to follow and understand, etc): 5 possible points
