Imagery is one of my personal favorite things about reading and writing. This pin is a great way to incorporate imagery which Duffy states is, "using prior knowledge about [descriptive] words and about our senses to create an image in the mind" (Duffy, p.117). "The relationship between reading and writing is particularity clear when teaching imaging...the more students practice composing text that helps readers create images, the better they will be at creating images as readers" (p. 121).
Imagery in Poetry: Can you see it now? by Jessie Metzger. Using Oranges by Gary Soto, Daffodils by William Wordsworth, and The Red Wheelbarrow by William Carlos Williams, I attempt to define, identify, explain, and analyze imagery in poetry. At the end of the video, students are left with the challenge of creating their own poem.
