PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Add rigor to your students’ enjoyment of Dead Poets Society with these three separate lessons that focus on the poetry Mr. Keating presents to his students in the film.

Each lesson includes a depth-of-knowledge question worksheet/s (with detailed answer keys, of course) that will require students to read closely, dig back into the text, and think deeply about the theme, structure, and modern relevancy of each poem.

Extra lesson materials include a non-fiction article and modern ad campaign (video clip) that features Walt Whitman’s “O Me! O Life!” poem and a six-slide Powerpoint lecture to accompany the compare/contrast lesson utilizing Walt Whitman’s “O Captain! My Captain” and W.H. Auden’s “Elegy for J.F.K.”

All of these lessons were built to stand on their own, so you don’t need to view to the film to make good and full use of these materials. They would fit nicely into ANY middle school or high school poetry unit. Depending on the pace of your class, these materials will take three-to-four full, 45-minute class periods to complete. Viewing of the film would take additional class time.

This bundle includes a total of:
9-pages of student handouts and answer keys (PDF format)
6-slide Powerpoint (also in PDF format for folks who don’t use Microsoft Office)
2 mp4 video clips/links
