The Sounds of Daydream

Based on the poem "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" by Irish poet William Butler Yeats, this resource is well constructed and guides learners through examining the Yeats poem (rhyme, meter, content) to composing a poem of their own about a place they go when daydreaming. Study includes exploring how word choice affects tone, mood, and clarity. Learners write their own contemporary 12-line poems modeled after Yeats. Excellent ideas for differentiated instruction and scaffolding.
