Poetry Study: Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven

Class
Mrs. McCartney
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(26)
As students read this famous poem, they will not only learn the story behind the poem, but also gain an understanding of alliteration, assonance, and internal rhyme.

Class experience

Students will recognize the poetic devices Poe employed, including alliteration, assonance, internal rhyme. In addition, students will be exposed to new vocabulary, and use context clues to determine meaning.  
I have taught this lesson for over 10 years. The focus is on the poetic devices used, and understanding of the plot points. Although there are supernatural elements, this is not the focus of the lesson. They are mentioned as plot points, but are not the focus of the lesson.
A handout with the information covered will be provided. 
This poem deals with the topic of mourning and supernatural elements. The raven in the poem is accused of being a demon that taunts the narrator with the fact that he will no longer be able to see his lost love. The focus of this lesson is on the poetic devices used, and comprehension of the poem. Although there are supernatural elements, they are mentioned only to foster understanding and are not the focus of the lesson.
After the lesson, the students will be encouraged to watch animated versions of this poem. This will help visual learners better understand the plot of the poem.
