The Poetry Archive: Sound, Rhythm, and Mood

Students respond to the sound, rhythm, and mood of a poetry text. In this poetry analysis lesson, students read the poem 'I See You Dancing, Father' about life and death and listen to the poet reading the poem. Students make a circle of chairs and act out portions of the poem with dance. Students discuss the poem and use signs or pictures to focus their listening skills for sound, rhythm, and mood.
