This lesson allows students to write a collaborative sonnet, either as a class or in small groups. Composing a sonnet as a class or group can be an effective way of reinforcing understanding of the sonnet's pattern and could be used to pave to the way for writing individual sonnets. Students start with the rhyme scheme and work backwards to fill in the iambic pentameter of the lines. This could easily be used with many sonnet or poetic forms.
