Exploring Symbolism

Mini Lesson #2


Connection and teaching point
Connection and Teaching Point

  • We have learned how authors use physical objects as symbols for themes and ideas in texts.

  • Today we will learn how to explore symbolism in poetry.


Teaching

  • We have learned that while reading poetry, it is important to read poems multiple times.

  • The first time you read a poem is for enjoyment, the second time is for meaning, and the third time is for appreciation.

  • One of the ways we can appreciate poetry is to appreciate the symbolism present.

  • Let’s read “Dust of Snow” by Robert Frost.

  • The first time we read the poem will be just for enjoyment.


Dust of snow robert frost
“Dust of Snow”Robert Frost

The way a crow

Shook down on me

The dust of snow

From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart

A change of mood

And saved some part

Of a day I had rued.


Second reading
Second Reading

  • Now, let’s read the poem a second time for meaning.

  • As I read, I am going to pick out one to two words from each line that I think are important and highlight them.

Important words
Important Words

  • crow, shook, down, snow, from, tree, heart, change, mood, saved, part, day, rued

  • Now that I have identified important words, let’s look over the words to see if they will help us understand the meaning of the poem.

  • Lets look at the literal meaning of the poem.

  • A crow shook snow on the speaker from a tree.

  • The way the crow did this changed the speaker’s mood and saved a part of his time of grief.
