Practical Criticism. [Lesson Plan].
Anthologists and editors prepare the way for poetry readers, selecting works that reward close reading and assisting interpretation through annotation. But on the Internet people can return to poetry in its native state--one set of words among many others competing for appreciation--and read with fresh eyes. The learning objectives of this lesson plan are: to analyze the verbal devices through which poems make meaning; to compare one's personal interpretation of a poem with the personal interpretations of others; and to develop standards of literary judgment. The lesson plan also contains the subject areas covered in the lesson, time required to complete the lesson, the skills used in the lesson, the grade level (10-12), and lists of the standards developed by professional or government associations that are related to the lesson, as well as activities to extend the lesson.
