English 9 — Tues. Apr. 10

Today: We looked at rhythm in poetry, first by watching a video about the use of the rhythmic device of “triplets” in rap music, then by analyzing the meter of the poem “The Fearful Traveler in the Haunted Castle” and reading it aloud, to a beat.

Over the next few classes we will continue to work on developing our awareness of rhythm in writing and attempt to write a poem on fear in meter.

Homework: Read your silent reading book, please.
