April is Poetry Month, so we are happy to feature a Unit Plan for teaching Sonnets in the link below. Shakespeare is certainly famous for his sonnets, but he built his poems on Petrarch's structural foundation, and even more poets followed suit throughout history.  Will your students write their own sonnets? Share them with Folger's Shakespeare Library to celebrate Shakespeare's Birthday! Email student submissions to educate@folger.edu and they'll select a few to feature in a blog post on Making A Scene! http://www.folger.edu/Content/Teach-and-Learn/Teaching-Resources/Teaching-Sonnets/
