Perfect Valentine's Day activity. Literary analysis of the timeless "How Do I Love Thee?" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, including interpretation, figurative language, other literary terms, personal connections, theme, and text support. Mini-lessons on sonnet form, rhyme scheme and more are integrated into the questions. Bonus decorated writing papers for students' answers and a menu of extensions. A suggestion for compare/contrast to a modern love song for a class activity is part of the Teacher Tips. Students also respond to a short biography of this fascinating Victorian (and may be surprised). Answer key provided and text of the poem included. Appealing format for upper grades in black and white for easy photocopying.
Can be used for whole class discussion, partners, small groups, independent work, as a poetry center activity, homework, extra credit, early finishers, an option on a menu of choices, or gifted enrichment. May be appropriate for upper high school--see the Preview to determine if it meets your needs.
