Have your Keynote poem slides ready to present during the block class.

Follow these basic guidelines:

maximum five minutes

slide(s) of whole poem with voiceover narrative that says whole poem and shows audience you understand what you are saying to them

four or five slides that display brief excerpts–with voiceover that explains how sound captures meaning; devote at least two slides to this topic of sound; if necessary, you may use the remaining slides to explain how rhythm and/or imagery contribute to the poem’s overall effect

the name of at least one specific device–for example, assonance, internal rime, etc.–appears somewhere on each slide
