1 Introduction and Anticipatory set (hook)

Using Edmodo and the prompt of "What characterizes Romanticism" students will share the knowledge they have before we start the unit. This will enable scaffolding as needed and a better idea of how much time the next lesson will need.

Student Instructions



2 Introduction- Anticipatory set

Teacher will use a power point to share several images of art popular during the early Romantic period. This power point will be interspersed with historical information.  Students will use their Characteristics of Romanticism handout to analyze  the text that are shared on the Power Point.

Student Instructions

Students will be asked several questions to promote analysis.

1) What are the elements of Romanticism in art.

2) What are some Characteristics of Romanticism.


3 Instructional Activities

Activity: Presenting

Students will receive two handouts. The poem by William Wordsworth  The Tables Turned and the TPA-FASTT. Using the TPA-FASTT students will analyze the text. Students will break into small groups of no more then 4. Students will work for about 10 minutes

Differentiation element: Students can chose to work alone instead of groups.
