Activity Overview


Themes, symbols, and motifs spring to life when you use a storyboard. In this activity, students will identify themes and symbols from the poem, and support their choices with details from the text. For instance, in the classroom, your students can track Keats' use of a motif through the entire ode. Ask students to track a motif, come up with their own examples, and put them into a storyboard for further explanation.
