Description

This easy to deliver one-day lesson uses the work of American poet Emily Dickinson to guide a discussion of many students’ dream of becoming a social media influencer/TikTok Famous. The student handout includes a copy of Emily Dickinson’s well-known poem, “I’m Nobody! Who are You?,” to compare with a modern poem written on the same theme. The handout includes a set of 10 short-answer critical thinking questions that will require students to dig back into the text and their own minds to find the answers.

This download also includes a suggested lesson procedure page, an optional poetry assignment, and a detailed answer key to make grading easy and help guide class discussion.

This product downloads as a PDF and includes a Google Drive version of the student handouts for online learners.
