Product Description
This activity includes a table (fully editable as it is a Word Document) that has three poems thematically relating to Beowulf: "Grendel's Brother," "Thanatopsis," and "Ozymandias" on the left. The right column includes a series of close-reading/analysis questions aimed at helping AP students to hone their skills of poetry interpretation.

The second section of the activity includes a prompt from a released AP Exam (poem included) and asks students to create a thesis statement only for the prompt so they might practice annotating, organizing their thoughts and creating a thesis in preparation for the Question 1 portion of the Free-Response section of the exam.

This activity was originally designed to be completed in one 80-minute period (block schedule) or as one evening's homework.
