Product Description

The seventh lesson in a unit plan centering on American Romanticism. The lesson explores in depth William Cullen Bryant's "Thanatopsis" and encourages students to compare it to another death-themed poem by a fellow American Romantic as well as a Native American prayer. Objectives include working in groups to identify poetic literary devices, speaker, tone, and Romantic elements in the poem “Thanatopsis”, relating the poem to the seminal ideas of its time, comparing and contrasting different poems to explain a common theme, applying knowledge of the concept that the theme or meaning of a selection represents a view or comment on life, and providing support from the text for the identified themes, and composing poems using a range of poetic techniques and figurative language.
