Used in my Senior English classes for years (as well as my AP class), this is a student favorite poem. Simple on the surface, it spurs and incites class discussion and deepens their understanding of irony. You - and your students - are going to be supercharged by this poem and the activities in this packet.
Included in the MASTER PACKET is an annotated copy of the poem for the teacher to use as well as a reaction paper. Finally, a student worksheet with a key is included. This has an essential question for students to consider, a pre-read activity, and a key to the questions over the poem.
