This week we are going to finish taking our notes on poetry. We will review poem scanning, different types of meter and touch upon poem analysis. Wednesday and Thursday you will create your own poems to be displayed in the classroom. Don't panic, you do not need to write your own poem. I'll let you try to figure that one out before class on Tuesday.

Homework:
Monday- Paraphrase the poem "One Art" from your note-taking packet
