Fabulous ideas. I wanted to bring poetry, art and music together, and this will help jump start that idea. Thanks for sharing.

I can't wait to use your materials to introduce the Romantic Period characteristics, and how this term came to be. My search for interesting material to introduce this genre, led me to your information.

A wonderful platform from which to springboard into the Romantic poets. I will endeavour to use the material as an adjunct to Jane Campion's remarkable film on Keats - 'Bright Star'. Thank you for a tremendous unit that has proven to be invaluable to my students. I did not ever consider incorporating Romantic art into my Year 10 English planning. A joy to teach.

My students and I greatly enjoyed using the ideas of this lesson, even though we selected a variety of poems to analyze, in place of the one suggested here. Wordsworth's "Daffodils" works great here. Unfortunately, the suggested TP-CASTT material are no longer available.

This just saved my life! I've been struggling to find a way to introduce this concept. Thanks!

In one of my classes, I am developing a three-day lesson on Romanticism and how to analyze with Romantic characteristics in mind. I knew what I wanted to do but couldn't seem to put it on to paper in an organized fashion. This plan is great! It incorporated everything I wanted to do without going overboard or creating a convoluted scheme. Thanks for your ideas!

I came across your Romanticism unit while I was researching some new ideas for my 9th grade English class. I absolutely love your unit plan! I will be teaching this unit in two weeks and I will let you know how it goes. Thank you for sharing your amazing ideas!
