The goal of this activity is for students to ultimately write their own Shakespearean sonnet after learning about the important features of the poetic form. Students will view a short Powerpoint and complete interactive activities for the four main components of the sonnet (the use of stanzas, rhyme scheme, meter, and the use of a volta). The final page gives a template and some instructions for student writing of an original sonnet. I have also uploaded a free Powerpoint that goes along with this worksheet, so if you purchase this product be sure to get the powerpoint. It will serve as a reference point for the student note section.
