Help students understand metaphor in Stopping by the Woods using this lively, discussion-based lesson. Even if you can only draw stick figures, this lesson shows you how to use simple sketches, yours and your students, to reveal Frost's intention and recreate the scene his poem describes. This lesson divides into two 50 minute segments. The second includes prompts for a general discussion of students' favorite smells, sounds, images, etc. and leads to the mining of Richard Cory by E.A. Robinson using discussion and sketching. Fun and easy.
