This product was used in my special needs 9th grade literature class. Before tackling Romeo and Juliet we spent a week analyzing the figurative language in Shakespeare's Sonnet 18.
This worksheet introduces the concept of Personification and provides opportunity for students to write their own. After being introduced to the concept, students read the sonnet and interpret the personification being used.
My students enjoyed this activity and allowing them to create their own personifications helped them to understand one of Shakespeare's most famous poems in a more personal way.
