Do your high school students need a fresh view of Valentine’s Day? This bundle of 3 lessons is perfect for teens who are anti-valentine's and need a break from all that cutesy love stuff. Guide them through 3 uncomfortable poems about 'love' and challenge them to see Valentine's Day from a totally new perspective.
Three lessons based on three poems: The Hat by Matthew Sweeney, Rubbish at Adultery by Sophie Hannah and Valentine by Carol Ann Duffy.
– these poems deal with sensitive issues and use language that may not be appropriate for every classroom. These lessons are aimed at K10-12 / AP Lit students.
