  2. Do as much of the PINK Scansion Quiz and the Asimov and the Sonnet Quizzes on the back as you can.  Do these in pencil!  (If you would like to print out a copy of this, click HERE) The following tips/ info should help you.  TO DETERMINE RHYTHM PATTERN: Try  ITAD:  iambic (u/), trochaic (/u), anapestic (uu/), dactylic (/uu), pentameter.   TO DETERMINE RHYME:  You use small letters to designate the rhyming pattern.  For example, use an "a" to designate the last sound at the end of the first line.  Use a "b" to designate a different sound than sound "a."  Use a "c" to designate another different sound than sounds "a" or "b."  Use a "d" to designate another different sound at the end of a line than sounds "a" or "b" or "c," etc.)       

    Example:                                                  

    Small gnats that fly                                                      

    in hot July                                   a                                 

    and lodge in sleeping ears           b                       

    Can rouse therein                      c    

    A trumpet's din                          c                                      

    With Day of Judgment fears.

    77 LOVE SONNETS BY GARRISON KEILLOR

    From Garrison Keillor:

    "When I was 16, Helen Fleischman assigned me to memorize Shakespeare's Sonnet No. 29, "When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state" for English class, and fifty years later, that poem is still in my head. Algebra got washed away, and geometry and most of biology, but those lines about the redemptive power of love in the face of shame are still here behind my eyeballs, more permanent than my own teeth. The sonnet is a durable good. These 77 of mine include sonnets of praise, some erotic, some lamentations, some street sonnets and a 12-sonnet cycle of months. If anything here offends, I beg your pardon, I come in peace, I depart in gratitude."

  2. For those of you who "volunteered" as SHAPERS to take home the agenda for group work next week, study the AGENDA (Click HERE for a copy of the planning agenda) and the gray GROUP POEM PRESENTATION GRADING SHEET (Click HERE for the grading sheet of the project).  Be ready to facilitate the group next week as you commit to a poem to choose for your color group's POETRY PROJECT.   As group leader (shaper), you get to choose how to ASSIGN the other group roles (recorder, reporter, analyzer/innovator, harmonizer, gatekeeper, networker) Click HERE for the group roles and descriptions.  You can simply assign each person to a role or let FATE decide (pick out of the FATE CAN) or let your GROUP MEMBERS CHOOSE.   

  3. Do as much as you can of the PINK Scansion Quiz and the Asimov and the Sonnet Quizzes.  Do these in pencil!  (If you would like to print out a copy of this, click HERE) The following tips/ info should help you.  TO DETERMINE RHYTHM PATTERN: Try  ITAD:  iambic (u/), trochaic (/u), anapestic (uu/), dactylic (/uu), pentameter.   TO DETERMINE RHYME:  You use small letters to designate the rhyming pattern.  For example, use an "a" to designate the last sound at the end of the first line.  Use a "b" to designate a different sound than sound "a."  Use a "c" to designate another different sound than sounds "a" or "b."  Use a "d" to designate another different sound at the end of a line than sounds "a" or "b" or "c," etc.)       

    Example:                                                  

    Small gnats that fly                                                      

    in hot July                                   a                                 

    and lodge in sleeping ears           b                       

    Can rouse therein                      c    

    A trumpet's din                          c                                      

    With Day of Judgment fears.

    77 LOVE SONNETS BY GARRISON KEILLOR

    From Garrison Keillor:

    "When I was 16, Helen Fleischman assigned me to memorize Shakespeare’s Sonnet No. 29, "When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state" for English class, and fifty years later, that poem is still in my head. Algebra got washed away, and geometry and most of biology, but those lines about the redemptive power of love in the face of shame are still here behind my eyeballs, more permanent than my own teeth. The sonnet is a durable good. These 77 of mine include sonnets of praise, some erotic, some lamentations, some street sonnets and a 12-sonnet cycle of months. If anything here offends, I beg your pardon, I come in peace, I depart in gratitude."
