English 10 Poetry: "Freedom"
Definition and Writing a Comparison

February 20, 2002

Today, we will work together first to define the term "freedom" as it applies to our lives. Then, we will read a poem titled "Freedom" in order to see one poet's view.

Group Definition:

1. What does it mean to have our freedom?

2. What can we do if we have our freedom?

3. Are there any restrictions on freedom?

4. Do some people have more or less freedom? Who are they, and why are they different?

Writing Assignment (Due next class, February 27)

Read the poem, "Freedom," by William Stafford.

How is his definition the same or different from your group's definition? Note the similarities and differences on a piece of paper.

Write a paragraph where you compare Stafford's ideas about freedom with your own and your group's opinion using your notes as a guide.

Write a minimum of 150 words in a single paragraph.

Quote the poet's words from the poem in your discussion (no more than ten words each time). Make a comment on what the poet may mean in your own words.
