Which Frost poem did you choose? I am quite the Frost enthusiast as well.

I have them memorize “The Road Not Taken” and also “The Pasture.” Middle school kids can memorize things quickly. It’s voluntary. They can earn extra credit. It takes most kids two or three 10 minute sessions to learn a poem. I use the old chestnuts like “The Village Smithy”, “John Barleycorn Must Die”, “I’m Nobody, Who Are You?”, “We Real Cool,” and “I Too.”
