Tomorrow, I’ll be out of class at an appointment. While I’m away, I’d like you to discuss, analyse and take notes on ‘Arrival of the Bee Box’.
Here’s some tips to get you started:
Arrival of the Bee Box
In this poem, Plath’s speaker expresses a desire to be in control, and feels she has to deal with a dangerous situation.
At first she is not in control. She panics. She has a debate with herself and then she makes a calm decision.
As you analyse the poem, remember to focus on PROSODY as well as her use of language:
- Internal Rhyme
- Cross Rhyme
Please update your notes on ‘Blackberrying’ with the annotations below – we’ll be going over this in class today.
Below is the marking guidelines for portfolio pieces, both creative and discursive. You should have a look at these and familiarise yourself with them, particularly when working on your own folio pieces.
As you look at the exemplars today, try and consider why those pieces scored what they did.
Can you complete the attached form (digitally, if possible) for the day you come back after the summer, Wednesday 16th August?
For those of you who missed Friday 9th June’s lesson.
