Preparing for Monday’s Exam Kick Off

 

Guiding Questions for Criteria A:

 

1)  Do you link literary devices to the purpose of the poem?

2) Do you identify literary devices in the context of evaluating how they are meant to effect the reader?

3)  Is your commentary focusing on analysis or summary?

See the checksheet for more help:  http://blogs.swa-jkt.com/swa/triciafriedman/2013/04/12/commentary-check-sheet/

Criteria B:

 

1) Do you use transitions?

2) Do you organize your commentary around ideas?  Your presentation should not merely go through the poem from line 1-end

 

Criteria C:

 

1) Do you use academic register when describing the author’s tone, attitude, diction, and line structure?
