This is an activity I use to introduce Romeo and Juliet. It includes a graphic organizer and instructions to annotate and respond to 3 classic love poems: "Sonnet 18" by Shakespeare, "Annabel Lee" by Edgar Allan Poe, and "i carry your heart" by e. e. cummings. The graphic organizer is designed for a class discussion comparing and contrasting the three poems.
Copies of the former 2 are also included-- the Cummings poem is not in the public domain, so I cannot offer it for sale. It is uploaded as a preview for this assignment.
