Analyzing a Shared Idea


In this lesson, students work in small groups to explore the relationship among Christopher Marlowe’s “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love,” Sir Walter Raleigh’s “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd,” and William Carlos Williams’s “Raleigh Was Right” as they complete an Evidence Collection Tool. Students develop their speaking and listening skills by participating in a jigsaw discussion about the following prompts: How does a shared central idea develop over the course of the three poems from this unit? How does each poet introduce and develop a central idea?
