The Rime of the Ancient Mariner – Sonnets
Ms. Nancy Himel, teacher from LA School District, and her class studiied “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and then she invited them to capture the tale in fourteen words, ending in a rhymed couplet! First, Ms. Himel wrote a sample lazy sonnet then invited her students to draft their own. Below is the lazy sonnet she shared with her students.
