In this lesson, students will begin to closely examine the impact of the words Rachel Field chooses to use at the end of the first three stanzas on the students' understanding of setting in the poem. For this second lesson, continue using the projected copy or chart of the poem used in the previous lesson. If you feel your students are ready, give each student a printed copy of the poem and highlighters or pencils to mark the text as you work. Students will work to identify key words in the text and determine how these words supply meaning to the poem. Dramatic reading of the poem will assist the students in understanding the importance of key words in the poem. Special Materials: Projected copy or chart of poem from previous lesson Student guided notes sheet - projectable or copies for each student Copy of poem for each student Highlighters or pencils (if needed)
