'Tis better to be vile than vile esteemed
Perception and reality are interwoven in this sonnet. How we appear to others is the adulterated version and not the truth. Rather, we should delight in who we truly are. That interplay is explored in both the reading and the workbook. Students are challenged to explore the text through group and individual activities that are practical in nature. There is also a set of questions and a convenient teacher answer sheet to promote analysis and discussion.
