Introduce Poet Study Project and choose poets

Begin work on critical annotations: 2 should be biographical. Consider different genres, e.g. a video about your poet and an article about your poet. Look at the "References" section of a Wikipedia page about your poet to get ideas, or visit Poetry Foundation or Academy of American Poets ( for a good starting place! Search your poet's name and "biography" in Google under "Videos" to try to find video sources, or search

A third critical annotation should examine the collection of poems (book) you chose. How is the book organized? What information do you glean from the preface/introduction/back cover?

See student sample annotated bibliography (all 5 critical annotations, alphabetized)

HW: Continue reading A Tale of Two Cities. Begin working on your first critical annotation.
