William Wordsworth's famous poem "Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey" is rich with nostalgia, nature and nuanced ideas. Students can hone their analytical skills with this gorgeous Romantic period English poem that expresses the poet's emotional response to a walk in the woods. This assignment is a fabulous formative assessment to see how students apply their knowledge of poetic devices and literary analysis.
For added enrichment, students may meet CCSS Speaking and Listening standards by digitally presenting a section of the poem while the class annotates for additional information.
The annotation guide may be used along with direct instruction, group or individual participation. It is uploaded as a Word document so you may scaffold for differentiation or alter to fit your instruction.
