HW Reminders: Look through the poetry terms to know in your poetry packet. Star the definitions you feel comfortable with, and circle the concepts that you are not as comfortable with (or don’t know at all!). Using your Bedford, or Dr. Wheeler’s lit terms site, jot down the definitions of the terms you don’t feel as comfortable with (yes, I ended with a preposition).

¡Billy Collins reads his poem…
¡First reading: For a few minutes, simply write down your reader response (yes, your reader response!) to Collins’ poem. What in the poem makes you think what you think, or feel what you feel?
¡Second reading: Did you see, hear, discover anything new when you heard the poem a second time? Explain.
