English 10: Semester Exam Review Sheet E. Lewis You will be asked to write a Commentary on your chosen poem from Tales from Ovid. Begin with your sense of the poem – your response to it. You should already have begun highlighting it when it was assigned earlier in the semester. Now, as we’ve done together in class with several of the poems, you are to prepare by examining and highlighting your poem in detail, considering how the language, structure, speaker, tone, and subject contribute to the overall themes of the poem. Be sure to consider how metamorphosis and hubris are conveyed in your poem.
As well did I when I first read Gatto's piece against school. But after reanalyzing this article I was able to pick it apart. By going to school you are able to learn and improve the skills you need for future commissions. But Gatto refuses to believe in the public school educational system. Gatto says that school diminishes creativity; if anything kids discover their hidden creativeness in class while at school.
Use the poems we read in class as your models to follow when you write your own. Remember, this is a "write-like" poem, so you should try to write like the authors of the poems below.

The Catcher in the Rye The Catcher in the Rye essay was one of my favorite essays I wrote this year. This is because the essay involved not only the book itself, but how the book reflects my own life. Unlike the other books I have read in this class, The Catcher in the Rye’s main character relates to my own life in some kind of way. The theme of the essay was the coming of age, which I learned a lot about from last year. There were five other choices of themes to choose from, but when I saw “coming of age,” I knew this was the theme to write about.
The Moe Bandy song "Too Old to Die Young" (written by Scott Dooley, Kevin Welch, John Hadley; see YouTube video below) appears several times in the novel. As a pre-reading activity, students could listen to the song (and, perhaps, read along with a print-out of the lyrics) and write a journal entry about what the lyrics mean to them.
