This easy-to-deliver one-day lesson will briefly introduce students to Anne Bradstreet, Puritan wife, mother of eight, and celebrated poet. The student handout includes a copy of her famous poem, “Verses Upon the Burning of Our House,” with helpful footnotes and critical thinking questions that will require students to dig back into the text and their own minds to find the answers.
In addition to a detailed answer key to make grading easy and help guide class discussion, this download also includes an optional poetry assignment, “A Few of My Favorite Things.”
