New Resources for Teaching Iambic Pentameter

We’ve made a few improvements. Come and see!

So good, we even had to tell our blog. Yes, for 2021, faced with a second National Poetry Month conducted via Zoom school, Bicycle Comics revisited our classic 2013 poetry lesson plan “Foundations of the Sonnet” and made some long-overdue updates.

Our Iambic Pentameter Lesson Plan is 100% Forsooth Free (and free to download)

We’ve expanded our original worksheets with new questions and new exercises. We’ve added even more examples of iambic pentameter as used in everyday speech. And, while our Teacher’s Answer Key is still absolutely free to teachers upon request, we’ve also created an entirely NEW premium worksheet and answer key for those who can’t wait to get started.
