Objective

This lesson follows the lesson of poem reading and help the students to enhance the understanding of Chinese love poem. I choose another piece of poem written by E. Browning. The kids need to read them and make a comparison.
The website www.shmoop.com is a useful one for them to find more information and help them break down the poems to analyse it. The students are instructed to focus on the different writing styles and emotion expressions to find different features.
I think it not a bad chance for the students to appreciate the poems by making a comparison.
