Narrative poetry

Saturday 10 November 2018

This week, we started to read the narrative poem- The Raven, by Edgar Allan Poe. There are some challenging words in the poem such as quaint, surcease, entreating and implore, so we spent some time predicting the meaning of these words and then using a dictionary to see if we were right or not.

We then watched a version of The Raven re-told by The Simpsons characters.

We answered some RIC (retrieve, interpret, choice) questions about the video clip and thought about what we liked and disliked about this version of the poem and how it’s presented.
