The Sonnet Challenge

Students 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. Students 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.

It is so helpful to have so many resources on one website. Sources that used to take hours of hunting on line now take little time to locate. In the event of a change of plans or if I need sub plans for the day, my work is done.
