Here's a copy of the "scanning iambic pentameter" exercises handed out in class on Oct. 9
And here are the 4 kinds of 2-syllable metric feet we discussed/reviewed yesterday too. Bold = strong stress; not bold = weaker stress. Note also how in the examples below "metric feet" can cover 2 syllables within a word or 2 syllables counted over 2 words. When measuring 2-syllable feet, each set of 2 syllables in a line count as a metric foot; the rhythmic units aren't necessary the same as the word units.
iambic = weak, strong ("To strive" / Tennyson)
trochee = strong, weak ("Romans" / Shakespeare)
spondee = strong, strong ("Moans round" Tennyson)
pyrrhic = weak, weak (the third and fourth syllables in "Innumerable" / Wordsworth)
