The Sonnet Challenge

High schoolers are given information about two popular sonnet forms-English and Italian. They are given the rules for writing a sonnet. Students are asked what type of sonnet they would use. They are each given a sheet of paper and asked to write a sonnet. High schoolers write the sonnnet together. They are explained the rhyme schemes and how the sounds of words are symbolically tracked with the letters of the alphabet.
