    Above is a teacher's interpretation of the poem we have studied together, "Because I Could not Stop for Death." One part of your assignment is to create this kind of visual interpretation and post it here. Another part of your assignment is to comment on the videos of others. Be sure to keep your comments appropriate.
    One method of interpreting a work is to focus on the dominant imagery to arrive at a motif. This motif will often lead the reader to a possible theme of the text at hand. To arrive at a motif and consider the depth of imagery throughout your chosen Dickinson poem, create a video using Photo Story to post on the Wiki Page that is a simple reading of the poem that connects to images as they are read. You may want to work with Audacity to help you achieve the timing for your slideshow, but it can also be done in Photo Story. In addition to your video, comment on the video of another student. Keep your comments appropriate, please.

    One important thing to consider is
    the contentuse of poetic devices throughout a poem. List five poetic devices used in your page here.chosen Emily Dickinson poem and post them here, noting where they are used in the poem by using line numbers. In addition, write an example of one of the poetic devices you have used and accompany it with a visual. For instance, if I were to say Dickinson personifies death as a driver in “Because I Could not Stop for Death,” I would provide another example of personification such as the wind snatched her hat and dangled it out of reach and an image as shown below

    Biographical Component
    One of the principle methods of analyzing an author’s work is the biographical-historical method in which a student analyzes a work by researching an author’s life and time period to find various elements that have influenced the text at hand. Start by viewing the Power Point above which provides very basic information about Dickinson’s life and times and will help give you some things to search for as your research. Post a response that includes a link to your source and some ways in which you see the research influencing your chosen Dickinson poem. In addition, look for the post of a member of a different collaborative group. After reading his or her information, reply to it by explaining how it also influences your chosen Dickinson poem.
