This little mini-pack is centered around William Shakespeare and Shakespearean sonnets! It is a Common Core-based pack that addresses close reading of a text, analyzing a sonnet, and differentiated learning styles/ strategies. It also includes an alternate version of the reading for ELL's or struggling students. It has an informative text on sonnets, then focuses on Shakespearean sonnets and how to organize and read them. The graphic organizer I included has helped my students tremendously with the oftentimes difficult meter/rhythm in sonnets.
This pack includes:
*informational text about William Shakespeare followed by Common Core based questions (2 versions)
*Taking a Close Look at Sonnets informational worksheet
*Graphic Organizer for Sonnets
*link to a short video clip on Shakespeare
*answer key and teacher guide for use
