In addition to Dickinson’s poems, this volume for students in grades 7-12 includes a “Pre-Flight”, a short introduction about reading poetry, a “Wrap-Up”, a more in depth explanation and discussion of some of the poems, along with “I Meet Nobody,” where Mr. Draeger travels back in time to meet Emily Dickinson.
Also included are open-ended, Socratic discussion questions to help students think more in depth about the poems and there are some Dickinson quotes.
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a portrait of Dickinson and over a dozen memes and posters. There are also some blank memes that your students can fill in with their own text.
“The poems in this book are outstanding. All that other stuff has to go—except for the time travel. I did like the time travel. Cool dog too.”
“Mr. Draeger is a nobody, so I really can’t in good conscience recommend this book.”
