Lyric/Poetry Analysis  (We use Adelle’s song Rumor Has It and the poem My Papa’s Waltz by Theodore Roethke to learn more about the elements within literary works. Great to use to teach/learn: speaker, subject, mood, tons, form, theme and identify imagery. This supports the Saskatchewan English 20 curriculum.)
