Tribute Piece

Quick Write:

  • List 3 of the  most important people in your life.
  • Choose 1, and write about what makes your relationship with that person special and unique (think memories, good and bad times, inside jokes, how you met…)

Read: “On My First Son” by Ben Jonson… Translate each line into plain speak.

Skill: Iambic Pentameter- rhythmic writing, in which a line is composed of 5 iams.  An iam is a combination of two syllables, 1 unstressed and 1 stressed.
