Guides students through a detailed analysis of a Shakespearean sonnet using this wonderful example, which provokes in-depth thinking about time, age, beauty, love and mortality. It also introduces students to some of Shakespeare's most exquisite imagery and brilliant poetic technique.
The slides provide brief background, then introduces the sonnet in chunks, with accompanying questions to guide and prompt students.
Teaching notes for each slide suggest different ways to approach each question (short answers, extended thinking and writing, class discussion, think-pair-share, mind mapping, etc.).
