Over the last 3 years I have had many appreciative comments about Rime of the Ancient Mariner Complete Resource. Here is a sample:
“Great for Visual Learners”
“Everything necessary to make this resource accessible to teens.”
“Thanks for making this resource available!”
Teachers and students like the rich Dore prints. The art and the poem have inspired me to make a suite of teaching resources based on Rime of the Ancient Mariner, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
