    Greetings all,

    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for teaching close reading of poetry, specifically Emily Dickinson. I'm starting a new unit in my 11th grade class next week on Dickinson, and while I've been kicking around a few ideas (including assigning one poem to several groups in class, and having each group examine a specific poetic device), I am definitely in need of any ideas veteran poetry teachers might have! I'm required to stick to the text, and not focus on any history/biography, so any close reading teaching techniques would be most appreciated.

    Thank you! :help:
