Puritan Poet Background Information

We worked on completing a graphic organizer on Puritan poets from pp. 98-100.  Preparing to Read Puritan Poetry Review Graphic Organizer September 2017


Puritan Poems:  “Huswifery” and “To My Dear and Loving Husband”

We read together the poems “Huswifery” by Edward Taylor and “To My Dear and Loving Husband” by Anne Bradstreet.  After highlighting a few of the main ideas of each poem, students could decide which poem they wanted to work on in their graphic organizer.”

You can access the poems AND the background information (pp. 98-102) here.

The graphic organizer is here:  Period 4B: Choose one of the poems to focus on and complete with the graphic organizer.

You can get ahead and finish our graphic organizers at home or finish after the test on Friday.

Don’t Forget: and are due this Saturday, September 9 at 11:59PM
