Product Description
Challenge your students help them meet the expectations of Common Core Standards by guiding them through close readings of the canonical poems “My Dear and Loving Husband” by Anne Bradstreet and “My Last Duchess” by Robert Browning. Then, facilitate their understanding of the speakers’ attitudes and central themes as they construct connections between the texts and complete a PARCC-inspired writing task.

This 19-page product includes the following:
-explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core Standards
-anticipation guide
-contextual reading guide and sample annotation passage
-poem texts
-rereading strategy handout
-literature web and poetry graphic organizer
-Venn diagram
-literary analysis prompt
-rubric
-answer key (including detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay)

Incorporating all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards, this "paired passages" lesson encourages students to practice skills in annotation, poetry analysis, and synthesis. Students complete handouts with before-, during-, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for diverse learners. Afterwards, students respond to a literary analysis prompt that imitates the style of the PARCC prototype and asks them to consider universal themes. Use as a formative assessment to prepare students for standardized assessments or for any students needing practice with literary analysis essay writing.

With its detailed instructions and samples, this resource would make an excellent lesson for a substitute if you will be out for a couple of days.
