2 Title  Ponder the title before reading the poem.

3 Paraphrase  Translate the poem into your own words.

4 Connotation  Contemplate the poem for meaning beyond the literal.  Are there symbols? Imagery? Personification? Other poetic devices? Why do you think the poet used these poetic devices?

5 Attitude  Observe the speaker’s and the poet’s attitude (tone).  What is the speaker’s tone? What is the poet’s tone?  Do the speaker and the poet’s tone have to be the same?

6 Shifts  Note shifts in speakers and in attitudes  Point out changes in who is speaking or in the tone.  Does the attitude/tone switch gears?

7 Title  Think about the title again.  Has the meaning of the title changed after studying the poem?

8 Theme  What is the poet trying to say? What idea is being communicated (not a summary of what happened in the poem)?

9 Use TP-CASTT!  TP-CASTT can be used to help you determine what you think a poet is trying to say in their poetry.  Rely on what you find in the poem, what the words say and how the poetic devices increase the meaning.
