"World enough, and time"-Andrew Marvell's Coy Mistress

Discuss tone and imagery with Andrew Marvell's "To His Coy Mistress." In an attempt to get his fair lady to consummate their relationship, he write a poem urging her to seize the day! Introduce the author to your high school class, conduct a close reading of the poem, and discuss the tone and imagery he uses. Consider pairing this activity with a writing assignment where your learners attempt to persuade someone to do something with rich tone.

It is very easy to quickly search a topic and get ideas from some of the lesson plans. For my student teaching seminar, we were required to share a web site that we have found helpful with the class. My professors, new and veteran teachers alike were all amazed by the resources provided by Lesson Planet and the ease in which they were obtained.
