Product Description
In 1956, Robert Frost gave the Commencement Address at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. Several excerpts are included in this close reading activity. (Note: As there are numerous document analysis forms available, one is not provided in this Power Point presentation). In his speech, Frost touched upon the notion that there needs to be a balance between freedom and equality, and he refers back to "dreamers" of the Constitution. This lesson can easily be used in Language Arts as well as Social Studies. In addition to the documents, several thought provoking questions are provided which can be part of the activity or a reflective closing segment of the lesson.

Designed to be a single class lesson with groups of 3-4 students, it could be expanded to consider some of his poetic writings if you so desire. Which road will YOU take?
