Product Description

Getting ready to teach a Shakespeare play? Looking to review the structure of a sonnet in a fun, tech-savvy way? Here's a quick one day lesson and homework assignment that will do the job!

The Lesson:

Students will listen to the poem "My Mistress' Eyes are Nothing Like the Sun" and then, working in partners or small groups, tackle a specific Annotation Checklist for all of the features of a sonnet. For groups and students who are unfamiliar with sonnet terminology, this product offers four QR codes to print and display that students can scan to support them in their exploration of the poem.

After examining the basic principles of a sonnet, students then move into answering four analysis questions about the poem itself.

Finally, I've included a Write Your Own Sonnet EDITABLE homework assignment that you can share with your students. Challenge them to try one on their own!

This Product Includes:

  • A detailed teacher lesson plan
  • A student handout with the poem, annotation checklist, and analysis questions
  • Printable QR codes
  • EDITABLE Write Your Own Sonnet homework assignment (make changes and assign on Google Classroom!)
