Figures of Speech Journal

Preparing for the JournalWatch the Imagery & Figures of Speech PowerPoints and read/annotate the Imagery & Figures of Speech poems before beginning this response. I go over all of this week’s poems in the PowerPoint videos, so those should be especially helpful.Completing the JournalSection 1: Initial ResponseChoose 6 of this week’s poems and read them again. When selecting poems, choose the ones you liked and understood the best, and/or the ones that made you think the most.For each poem, write a 1-2 sentence quick response. Don’t think too hard about it, just write down your thoughts immediately after you complete each poem.Your initial response should be at least 6 sentences in length (at least 1 sentence for each poem). Bullet point or number the sentences to make them easier to read.Section 2: Window/Mirror ResponseA window/mirror response is all about empathy. In a window/mirror response, you write about a poem that gave you a look into someone else’s life experiences (window) OR reflected your own life experiences (mirror). Sometimes, a poem can do both!Choose 1 of the poems we read this week. (I suggest using one of the ones you wrote about for the initial response.) If you are writing a window response, discuss what this poem showed you about someone else’s life experiences and then talk about how the poem made you feel. If you are writing a mirror response, discuss why this poem reminded you of your own experiences and then talk about how the poem made you feel. If a poem did both, you are welcome to discuss that as well.Your window/mirror response should be at least 1 developed paragraph (5-7 sentences) in length.Section 3: Analytical ResponseChoose 1 of the poems we read this week. (You can use the one you wrote about for the window/mirror response or you can choose a different poem.) Then, choose at least 1 of the poetic devices we went over in this week’s PowerPoints:imagery (kinetic or static)moodsimilemetaphorpersonificationhyperboleunderstatementmetonymysynecdocheapostropheWhere does the author use the device in the poem? Include at least 1 direct quote from the poem. (To see how to clearly format a quote from a poem, click here Download click here.) How does the device connect to the poem’s meaning?If you use any sources to help you analyze the poem, make sure to list them. MLA or APA citations are not required, but you do need to give credit to your sources. Don’t use too much from sources! I want you to talk about what you see. Sources are not required.Your analytical response should be at least 1 developed paragraph (5-7 sentences) in length.Sample Journal Download Sample JournalTo see a sample journal entry, click the link above.
