    This project is a great way to study the modern poet Robert Frost.

    It is also designed so that each of the five units can be studied separately. You could also use these units as emergency lesson plans when a substitute is needed in a pinch.

    This unit combines Common Core benchmarks with the Smarter Balanced approach to assessment: selected responses and constructive responses.

    All answer keys give answers to the multiple-choice questions, and they also give suggested answers to the short-answer questions.

    If you are not interested in doing the entire unit, I have each of these units for sale individually in my store. If you buy this product, though, it includes everything that is in each individual poem for sale in my store, as well as the introductory PowerPoint.
