preliminary research
Preliminary Research
  • Use the databases and other links from the project guide to find:
    • A biography of your poet
    • some simple literary criticism on your poem/poet.
  • After you skim this information:
    • makes notes in the Word document you started in step 1
    • Use Noodle Tools to create citations for the sources you plan to use
  • Formulate some more specific questions about what else you need to know.


  • Insert your poem into Power Point (this may take several slides)
  • Transfer your research from the Word document into PowerPoint.
  • Create hyperlinks from words and phrases in the poem, to the slides with your research
  • Don’t forget to include:
    • Parenthetical citations
    • A Back button on each info slide
    • Works cited page
  • If you are worried about plagiarism, submit your notes to Turnitin.com, before you transfer your work into PowerPoint


  • You’re finished! But, not really!
  • Find someone to look over your Power Point (librarian, teacher, parent, friend). Ask them to make sure:
    • Your links work
    • All of the information you give makes sense
    • You have included parenthetical citations
    • Your works cited page is correct


  • Insert a copy of your poem into a Word document
  • Read the poem carefully and make notes on the rhythm, rhyme scheme, meter, metaphor, hyperbole, imagery, tone etc.
  • Think about the meaning of the poem and jot down ideas. Make note of words or phrases you think may have historical meaning.
  • Jot down questions about what you need to know next.


cross curricular research
Cross-Curricular Research
  • Use the resources on the project guide to begin some general research about the time period in which your poem was written
  • When you uncover some specific connections, research these indepth.
    • This tends to be Mouse Cookie research – You might search for awhile without finding anything, but once you make one connection, that tends to lead you to another and another.
  • As you find information, make notes in your Word document, and cite your sources using Noodle Tools




I met a traveller from an antique landWho said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stoneStand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,Tell that its sculptor well those passions readWhich yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;And on the pedestal these words appear:"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"Nothing beside remains. Round the decayOf that colossal wreck, boundless and bareThe lone and level sands stretch far away.
