Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

Lesson Plans by Kristy Littlehale

Robert Frost is often thought of as the quintessential American poet. He pairs calm, serene American settings with calm, serene feelings of his narration. His poems capture both ordinary human experiences and the imagination, in addition to creating unforgettable rhythms and sounds in the colloquial language of New England. “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening” is one of his best known works, and explores the theme of obligations versus man’s desire for peace of mind. While the narrator in the story wants to stop and admire the world around him and the peace he finds in nature, he knows he has obligations to keep so he must move on. This is a common experience many students will recognize, as they also have obligations that keep them from doing the things they really want to do.

Book Reports 2.0

By Anna Warfield

Book Report. That term is used pretty loosely. Some people mean a detailed synopsis. Others want an in-depth analysis on one or more literary devices. Some people actually mean a critic's review of the book. There are even those who want EVERYTHING. Storyboard That wants to bring all of the different kinds of book reports together in a much more engaging medium.
