Transcript

  • 1. Getting Started… •This is a process to help you organize your analysis of poetry. •We have already learned the vocabulary, now it’s time to put it into practice! •Together, we are going to analyze “American Hero” using TPCASTT. •You have a note sheet that looks like this…
  • 2. Add your analysis of “American Hero” to this sheet!
  • 3. T i s f o r T I T L E •Analyze the title first. •What do you predict this poem will be about? •Write down your predictions. •We will reflect on the title again after we have read the poem. •The next step is often omitted, but it is the most important!!!!
  • 4. NOW RE A D T HE P OE M
  • 5. s f o r P A RA P HRA • Paraphrasing is putting something in your own words. • After reading the poem, rewrite it in your own words. • This may be three sentences or a page, depending on the particular poem.
  • 6. C i s f o r CONNOT A T I O N •Analyze the figures of speech and sound effects of the poem. •These are the poetry vocabulary we have already studied. •These elements add to the meaning.
  • 7. A i s f o r A T T I T UDE Tone is the attitude of the speaker toward the subject of the poem.
  • 8. S i s f o r S HI F T •If there is a change in… –Time –Tone –Speaker This should always be noted as this will also affect the meaning.
  • 9. i s f o r T I T L E ( a g a i n •At this time, you should reconsider the title. •Were you right in your predictions? •What other meanings might the title have in light of your analysis? •Next, the biggie….
  • 10. T i s f o r •As you alreadyH E M E T know, theme is the general insight into life conveyed by the author through his/her work. •It does not make a judgment. example: “Don’t do drugs” is not a theme. •It merely states something that is true to life and the human condition.
  • 11. How do I find the T H E M E ? •Look at the other parts of TPCASTT. •What insight are all of these working together to convey? •What is the poet trying to say about life? THANKS Mr. Knott
