Lola Rennt
I'm grading the finals on poetry and poetry vocab today (yesterday was the last day of the semester).

I just have to show you one answer a kid gave me. It shows real imagination!

They were to be analyzing the poem "Stopping by Woods..." by Robert Frost.

The final lines of which are:

And miles to go before I sleep, 
And miles to go before I sleep.

The question was "How does the meter reinforce the meaning of the poem?"

The student correctly identified that meter as 8, then answered the question this way:

"If you turn an 8 sideways then it becomes infinity, which shows how many miles he has to go before he sleeps."

No credit, but very creative!
