Poetry Test Tomorrow

This is mostly for first period, but it applies to all five of my classes… I wasn’t sure when we would be able to do our poetry test because I wanted to do an online review first, but since the network is too overloaded with science testing right now, we need to stay off the computers. So our test will be tomorrow, and we will save the Kahoot review for the end of the year.

The poetry test is in two parts and may continue on Friday.

  • 50 poems to identify (In some cases the title and/or author will give it away… In others, you will need to check the rhyme scheme and count the number of lines. With a few, you will need to read them closely and consider the topics and content.)
  • 25 questions about poetry, stanzas, rhyme, rhyme scheme, ballads, free verse, lyric poems, haiku, etc.

This is not an easy test. If you think you can get an A+ without reviewing, you are probably mistaken… So please study!
