This is an enrichment activity I do after reading Robert Frost’s Biography and his three poems: “Nothing Gold Can Stay”, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” and “The Road Not Taken”. I show clips from the movie Dead Poets Society which refers to Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken” and the theme of nonconformity. Then we study the poem “O Captain!
