Lesson on Sonnets
This mini bundle includes a sonnet from William Shakespeare (#130) and a sonnet from Elizabeth Browning (How do I Love Thee?). In this activity, students will compare the different tones and forms from both poems. One is beautiful and romanticizes love, and the other sees love realistically (and a little meanly if you ask me). Students will identify the different types of sonnets, the figurative language found within their lines, and will have the opportunity to write their own.
Students get to see another side of Shakespeare from his sonnet. Students always love his realistic, yet sarcastic portayal of love.
The mini bundle includes:
– a detailed lesson plan for the teacher
– student notes (the poems) and activity
– an annotated copy of the poems as well as a comprehensive answer key.
The entire unit contains 4 pages.
This lesson is part of a larger poetry bundle:
