Following this, we analyzed "School Spirit Skit 2" as a class, looked at "Fun" and "Tom's Diner," and listened to a few contemporary songs to challenge our ideas about whether all song lyrics were poetry. We then worked individually on our own poems.
The test is on Tuesday. An essay question on the test would likely focus on your choice of the two "tough questions" we've asked during this unit: What makes a poem a poem (and is "The Purpose of Poetry" one)? and/or Are all song lyrics poems? Your completed packets are due on that day as well.
