Before completing the reflective writing assignment, make sure you have read the instructions for the literary analysis paper, because this assignment is pre-writing for that. You will need to use the same poem for this assignment as the one you want to write your paper on. That means you are choosing your poem before you do this reflective writing assignment.
For this unit's reflective writing assignment, turn back to pages 262-263 in your textbook to remind yourself of the different literary elements you could choose to focus in the poetry analysis you are working on this week. Address the following questions:
1) Which element or element(s) will you focus on in your draft?
2) Why has this element caught your attention in the particular poem you are working on?
3) Discuss at least one claim related to the element and the evidence from the poem's text you are using to support that claim. [2018-07-04]
