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 (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 relevancy of each poem.

All three lessons were built to stand on their own, so you don’t need to view the film to make full use of these materials. They would fit nicely into ANY high school poetry unit. Depending on the pace of your class, these materials will take three or four 30-minute to 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 + Google Drive versions of handouts)

Want to take a closer look at any of these individual items? Each of these lessons are sold separately in my shop, but you’ll SAVE 20% by purchasing this budget-priced bundle!
