This six-page printable walks students through analyzing the poem "Out, Out" by Robert Frost.
It begins by discussing the allusion to Shakespeare, discusses through the story and feelings of the poem, and explores the newspaper article of the event the poem may be based on.
Student then bring the three source texts together to fully understand the poem.
Update: I have added an opening activity that dives into the meaning of the Macbeth quote from which the poem's title is taken. Jigsaw students into five groups. Each group is responsible for pulling apart one of the sentences in the quote. Quite engaging and meaningful!
