Product Description
This unit goes with the play "The Belle of Amherst" which is a one woman play about the life of Emily Dickinson. I have used this unit with gifted students as young as third grade, up to remedial high school students. The play gives real insight into how a poet uses the events of their life to shape their poetry. This unit divides the play into 8 sections, each with its own worksheet. For each section, students choose a title that shows the main idea and answers several questions. Conclude the reading with a DVD of the play, and you have "painless poetry"!
