This activity is two parts:
Part one is a simple worksheet over a close reading of the poem.
Part two asks students to create a modern talk show with characters from the poem: "Choose a group of four or five individuals. With your group, you will be responsible for staging a live skit of a talk show. The show will take place after the poem ends with the husband and the wife reuniting. You are responsible for staging each character appropriately and making the scene relevant and true to the poem."
This is one of my favorite activities!
