This is a full two-week unit for studying sonnets Shakespeare and a few select others. The package comes with a keynote, PowerPoint, and PDF version of a slide show that contains a history of sonnets, a definitions of terms, a video of a TED talk that links sonnets to Hip Hop, and much more. The package also includes two different assignments that ask the students to investigate, analyze, interpret, and present to the class a specific sonnet by Shakespeare! I have perfected this lesson over the past 5 years and have found great success in this approach. Enjoy!
