In this lesson, students read the final 14 lines of “My Last Duchess.” Students learn to identify central ideas in the poem. In the course of this lesson, students read and analyze a new standard, RL.11-12.2. Students also continue to work with some of the poem’s challenging vocabulary and syntax. In pairs, students participate in evidence-based discussions to explain how the choice of Duke as speaker impacts the development of central ideas in the poem.
