Help students to understand sonnets and write a text-dependent analysis with this easy-to-use packet. A cover sheet, scaffolded summarizing task, analysis prompt with rubric, close reading activity, and comprehension quiz are all included.

Begin with a short text that explains sonnets and their history. Then, students dive into two included sonnets--"Still Will I Harvest Beauty" by Edna St. Vincent Millay and "Ozymandias" by Percy Bysshe Shelley. A close reading activity (with answer key) helps students to analyze the texts and prepare for the analysis task. Students finish the activity with an 8-question comprehension quiz.

Note: This is a challenging packet! I used it with sixth graders, but it could be used with older students as well.

Comparing Texts: Narrative Response 1
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Compare and contrast the experience of reading a story, drama, or poem to listening to or viewing an audio, video, or live version of the text, including contrasting what they “see” and “hear” when reading the text to what they perceive when they listen or watch.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of a specific word choice on meaning and tone.
Determine a theme or central idea of a text and how it is conveyed through particular details; provide a summary of the text distinct from personal opinions or judgments.
Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
