Find Your Poem for Your Research Paper!

6 Mar

Today we will be in the computer lab, room a206 to search the internet for the poem you will use for your research paper.  (Period 3, we will meet in the library).

My recommendations on your poem…

-Choose a somewhat well-known poem, so you can find criticisms (research) about it.
-Consider finding a backup poem, in case you don’t like your original or have a hard time finding research.
-Print out 3 copies.  You will need to turn one copy in with your paper.  You may wish to take notes on a copy. Etc.

After you have your poem, take some notes on it.  Use the questions in your packet, and the ones I gave as notes on Wednesday. Poetry Reading Tips and Terms  You will be expected to have a page worth of notes on your poem in your notebook.
