LANGUAGE ARTS Literature & Reading Comprehension

The Secret Code of Poetry And the Art of Understanding It RoseMary C. Johnson, Ph.D. The Secret Code of Poetry is a unique, Catholic poetry course which combines poetry appreciation with an in-depth study of “how a poem works.” Hands-on activities and memorization assignments increase the student’s appreciation for the beauty of poetry, while clear explanations and step-by-step analysis assignments de-mystify poetic techniques such as enjambment, alliteration, meter, irony, and more. Each lesson ends with activities that engage the student’s attention and allow him to put into practice the concepts he has learned. These activities range from “Practice!” and “Analyze This!” assignments, to poetry memorization and recitation, to compiling a personal poetry anthology, to writing an original poem. Recommended for students in 7th–9th grades. Through the study of poetry, your student will learn to: • decipher difficult grammar and word-choice to grasp the essence of what is said • look beyond the literal level of a text • pay attention to details • study the structure of a work and the relationship between its whole and its parts • discern what is most important in complicated ideas • understand irony • think through ideas The Student Text contains 27 lessons and a 30-page anthology of over 100 favorite poems by poets such as Dickinson, Frost, Hopkins, Wordsworth, and Shakespeare.
