                                      below. The roles will provide a division of
                                      duties to be sure everyone takes part in the
                                      action. You will create a poster or posters with
                                      each of the following roles. A creative
                                      presentation is needed—posters with

                                      these posters, you will need to present a

                                      each of you have done along with the sources
                                      that you have used. Use the MLA FORMAT.

Meter Master: during this assignment you will become the expert on the
rhythm and rhyme of poetry

desired affect will be your domain of expertise

expert stylist you will become familiar with the different structures a poem
can take

                                 Project I : Literary Guide

poetry. Explain each in your own words and give a 1 or 2 line example of
each from a poem. BE SURE to include the author's name after the example

example for proper citation. After giving the definitions and examples give a
1 page summary on how the use of poetic elements can affect poem.

an example of each style (you will need to include the whole poem since
overall structure defines the style) and explain why the example fits the
definition. Exception: for the epic simply give a title of one and the author,
then summarize what the poem is about and why it fits the definition. BE
