WW#1 Poetry Analysis

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20751951-poems-from-the-first-world-war

Elizabeth analysed several poems from this First World War Poetry anthology. I purchased the anthology on my ipad and she chose the poems from there. She used this free sheet from Teacher Pay Teachers and though it was for younger students we just discussed the poetry in more depth in terms of theme and what meaning the authors were trying to convey. She did several different poems this way and it was a great way to add to our WW#1 studies! Most of the poems in this anthology were written by soldiers so the meaning and emotions were raw. This also make them interesting and engaging.
