Ms. Berkowitz and Coleytown Middle School students prepare for a class discussion comparing the tone/theme of two different poems by systematically breaking down the individual poems using the SIFT method (symbolism, imagery, figurative language, tone/theme). Working independently, students identify examples of the first three components before making decisions about the overall tone and theme of the work. In small groups, students then discuss their findings and compare elements of the two poems. Ms. Berkowitz transitions to a larger class discussion by focusing on the differing tone and theme found in the poems and sharing how literary elements contribute to understanding the tone/theme.
