4th grade poem comparison structural element focus - By Heidi Weber

00:01 So we're going to start working on this goal where
00:05 we're looking at differences between poems in particular . Of
00:10 course , we can recognize that poems use a different
00:14 structure . We've learned that they're arranged in lines and
00:21 stands us versus paragraphs and sentences . Now we're gonna
00:28 look at some common structural elements of poems in particular
00:32 , and how we can refer to these elements in
00:35 a poem when we're talking about how they are different
00:39 . So let's get started . So one of the
00:44 first lessons that we did in our comprehension notebooks back
00:49 in third grade was we worked with elements of poetry
00:53 and I gave you some of these terms . We
00:56 talked about different types of figurative language . I know
01:01 that we thought about making images and what's great about
01:04 poems is poems often do this for us . They
01:07 invoke the sense of being able to actually feel like
01:13 we're drawn in rhyme in this sound when we read
01:19 a poem is also pretty important here . Now here's
01:24 something that's interesting for you to take a look at
01:28 . Some homes do have patterns , and we know
01:31 that they rhyme . We have the idea of a
01:34 couple . It were two rhyming lines are together ,
01:39 or even a triplet , where there might be three
01:41 rhyming lines and a sequence . So one of the
01:44 first things I wanna ask you to dio is Take
01:47 a look at the two poems that I gave you
01:49 . I gave you The Sentinel's creed , and then
01:57 I also gave you the vigil . One of those
02:01 two poems has rhyming couplets . Pause now and see
02:09 if you can figure out which one has rhyming couplets
02:16 . I also had to add this information into your
02:21 notebook , um , personification , being a specific type
02:25 of figurative language that's fun to work with . The
02:30 idea of Asan it's and Constance are advanced concepts ,
02:34 and I'm not going to go into these , but
02:37 it might be something fun for you to explore independently
02:41 . We are , however , going to take a
02:43 look at the idea of a rhythm when we get
02:45 a pattern that's being creative . And one of these
02:50 two homes in particular , has some strong and weak
02:54 syllables in it . You've learned about Cilla vacation ,
02:59 and so we're going to take a look at which
03:02 poem has rhythm to it . It's kind of like
03:06 it has a beat . I believe I even talk
03:09 to you about how I feel like I bounce when
03:12 I read it Or say it This'll is gonna get
03:14 us moving into an idea of metrical forms . Pause
03:20 for a second to make sure you can identify which
03:22 poem you think might have some rhythm . Now ,
03:27 these air some other elements that you can be aware
03:30 of liberation and on , um on Apia , both
03:32 being examples of different types of figurative language . We
03:36 won't get into that with the poems Sentinels Creator Vigil
03:41 . Um , we will perhaps look for a little
03:43 bit of repetition and particularly as we think about the
03:48 line breaks , um , one of the two poems
03:52 is written in a structure that is very open .
03:58 We call that free verse , that free verse firm
04:03 that then has some interesting ways that groups of words
04:08 or ideas air put together . So that's something also
04:12 that we can explore now , looking at the two
04:17 poems side by side , it is clear that the
04:20 Sentinel's creed is our free verse poem , and it's
04:25 very clear that the vigil is our poem arranged and
04:30 clear , distinct wines and stanzas . But it is
04:33 also the poem that has thes rhyming couplets . So
04:39 those were two ways that we can compare these poems
04:43 . We've already identified the idea of the my and
04:47 the I here making this poem being set in a
04:54 first person point of view interview and then over here
05:01 in the vigil because we're referring to a he in
05:06 hiss thing . We know that this one is written
05:08 in a third person point of view . Those were
05:15 some pretty easy comparisons that we can make just on
05:19 the surface Now if we think about examining the elements
05:25 in the poem those things that I just pointed out
05:28 Yeah , we can also go back Thio , noting
05:31 that , yes , we have one that's in free
05:33 verse in stanzas . But here's where focus is going
05:36 to go now . One of the poems in particular
05:39 , has what we call meter . It's kind of
05:42 like a measurement , and then it measures beats .
05:46 I'm going to explain what that means . In order
05:51 for us to consider the idea of meter , we
05:54 have to look at the idea of syllabic ation or
05:59 look at this syllables . So if I take a
06:02 look at this first line , I have in measured
06:08 steps he makes in rounds . I count 12345678 syllables
06:18 . So his first line has eight syllables . But
06:20 here's where the beat comes in . You notice how
06:23 , when I say each word , or when I
06:26 read each syllable , it's like I put a little
06:28 more stressor , emphasis on it in measured steps he
06:35 makes in rounds . So what I've done here is
06:39 I've identified what we might call a stressed syllable or
06:44 it is said with a little more emphasis . Now
06:48 , if I take a look at thes pairs ,
06:50 I he have , ah stressed on stressed a stressed
06:54 on stressed syllable , a stressed on stressed syllable and
06:58 a stressed on stressed syllable . So each one of
07:02 these is kind of like saying , Oh , here's
07:05 a poetic foot . So how maney feet are in
07:10 this first one , it has 4 ft or the
07:15 meter in this case with the beats four beats ,
07:21 so we could say it has a tetra meter .
07:24 Now keep in mind that this is an extremely advanced
07:28 concept , but it's one that it's fun for us
07:31 to explore . What we can do now is we
07:34 can take a look at some of the other lines
07:37 and see how they compare . So let's say that
07:41 I look at the first line in the first stanza
07:44 . Now I'm gonna come down to the first line
07:47 in the second stanza , he Oops , he responds
07:56 . Not to the viz whips . Missed one .
08:02 This is tricky for me . To this it tors
08:05 stare . So I have that pattern of that stressed
08:09 and on stressed again . And this time , if
08:15 I measure out thes poetic feet , what do I
08:19 get ? I get 12345 And so this time I
08:25 could say it's a pentameter . So just annoy idea
08:29 for us to play with as we're looking at the
08:32 idea of how many syllables and then how maney syllable
08:38 pairs that we have . And so , for these
08:41 pairs again , it's what we call an unstrap est
08:47 and a stressed syllable . As you play with this
08:51 idea , sometimes you might find that a stressed syllable
08:54 comes first and then an unstrung est . So I
09:00 challenge you now to take a look at some of
09:03 the other lines in this poem and see if you
09:06 can figure out perhaps what the meter might be .
09:12 And so now here is the challenge I'm giving you
09:16 in order to meet our goal of being able to
09:19 compare the structure and the elements into different poems .
09:24 I'd like you to compare these poems in at least
09:29 three different ways using some of the information that I
09:33 just gave you . You can compare the idea of
09:37 how one has meter versus that free verse idea .
09:44 You can compare the idea of their point of view
09:49 . You can compare how they're arranged . You can
09:52 look for figurative language . I'd like to see you
09:58 make some notes on three ways that you can compare
10:03 thes two poems using structural elements or some of the
10:14 obvious differences . They're both poems , but they're both
10:20 very different .
