Grade 10 ELA Module 1: Unit 1, Lesson 2

If you only read a poem once, you'll miss many levels of analysis and comprehension. High schoolers finish reading "The Passionate Shepard to His Love" by Christopher Marlowe, and discuss the ways that the poem's organization contributes to its message and tone. For homework, they read the poem once again to find examples and effects of repetition.
