Monday, Feb. 27th

We went over four poems that are like the ones you’ll see on the provincial exam.  There were “Expatriates,” “i am a dangerous woman,” “It is dangerous to read newspapers” (139), and “Picketing Supermarkets” (161).

We’ll be practising the poetry section of the provincial exam on Tuesday, March 7th.

Meanwhile, start preparing for your POETRY VIDEO PROJECT, which we will put together on March 1st.  Choose a poem and a video interpretation, and start gathering your clips (URLS and files).  Divide up the stanzas between your partners, and start practising the reading.  Decide on key word emphasis, pauses, expressions, and pacing.

Poems to choose from….
