This is a comprehensive lesson and I appreciate being able to use it with my 7th graders. Very good layout of pre-reading strategies.

Ah, yes my students as well loved reading it also. I am a enriched reading teacher. And my student loved this activity so much they said they wanted skip recess and read it over.

Some of ReadWriteThink.org's lessons contain answer keys, but some do not. In this case, we chose not to publish an answer key for these resources to allow teachers the opportunity to treat it as an inquiry projects. If a particular answer is hard to find, the teacher and student can research it together.

I was wondering if there were answer keys to the student worksheets.

Students enjoyed this reading quite a bit. It certainly helped them determing the mood of the poem.
