Teach the poem that has it all...

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner of by Samuel Coleridge is a poem that has it all: great joy and sorrow, guilt and sin and redemption, and the supernatural. The strong bond with nature is broken when the mariner kills the albatross:

“I had killed the bird that made the breeze to blow.”


That was the start of the mariner’s dark journey. After escaping death and horror, he is destined to go from land to land telling his tale...

The strong imaginative themes make this great work a real winner with high school students. The key is immersing your grade 9 or 10 students in the sounds, the art, the dark feel of the poem.

There are lots of excellent classroom resources to make this piece of literature come alive:
