Week 2 9/4 – 9/7

Here are a few things we can do to have a quality interpretation of writing from class on Tuesday:
    Interpreted figurative language (Metaphors, Similes, Symbols, Personification, etc..) 
    Using text evidence (Always refer to the text to back up your interpretation)
    Using classroom language (Refer back to words you learned in class: Symbol, figurative language, stanza)
    Interpreted every stanza
    Look at all of the lines in the poem

We are going use our new skills writing figurative language to help us interpret literature. We are going to start the week by figuring out what interpretation means and what kinds of questions a good reader would ask (For example: Who is the speaker, what is the mood, what is the personal or historical context?) when it comes to interpreting writing. We will start by analyzing The Wind Cries Mary by Jimi Hendrix (Using figurative Language and Personal history context) and The Road Not Taken (Decoding symbols to interpret poetry) by Robert Frost
