This 72 slide powerpoint lecture goes through a close reading of the following poems, which are also available separately through my store using the links below. I've also included a PDF of focus Common Core standards, higher level thinking questions, and annotated teacher notes.
(Buying the entire unit is the best value!)
John Keats: "Ode on a Grecian Urn"
Percy Bysshe Shelley: "Ode to the West Wind" and "Ozymandias"
Lord Byron: "She Walks in Beauty"
Wordsworth: “The World Is Too Much With Us”
I use this unit as part of 12th grade British literature with an anthology, but it is appropriate to any high school level and the poems are readily available online.

Please note, this product has been tested on Powerpoint 2010 for PC and Powerpoint 2011 for Mac. If you have any issues with the sizing, or anything, please contact me and I will create for you a static image ppt that will be universal. I'm in the process of adding this to all of my products, but full time teaching takes up most of my day ;)
Thank you! Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in any way ;)
