Teaching Unit about the English Romantics

This year I am going to work on  Romanticism and  the Victorian  Age mainly.
Starting from January I will work on poetry and the English  Romantic Poets.
My teaching unit is about  Romanticism and I will work on it with my 4th year class students in a Liceo Artistico in Reggio Emilia.
My students do  Art and Art related subjects at school but they are also involved in studying Italian Literature, French Literature, History and Philosopy. I would like them to find  connections with the context of the European Romanticism, starting from the  Pre-romantics and the Sturm und Drang.

I have collected the main  texts and visuals online by using  a  WAKELET which I am going to share with my students.

We are going to use  materials taken from our English Literature  Book but  we will also use free online materials to exploit the world of  Romanticism.
The Learning path starts with the students viewing a film - this is homework  for them- and it is freely accessible from our  RAI portal- Bright Star.
This film is a focussed on the life of a young poet who died  in Italy -  Keats- and belongs to the second generation of the English Romanticism.

The next step will be on learning about new feelings and ideas in the late XVIII century by reading and viewing some videos.
Since Art and the Natural Landscapes are important I would like my students to focus on the works by some painters who are  associated to  Romanticism- this implies that the Teacher of Art will be asked to focus on the themes too.  I do really hope that this will help my learners to understand  the age of feelings and Romanticism.
The focus on the unit is on  poetry and we will deal with  some poets of the first generation of Romanticism and the key words like feelings, Nature, the role of the poet in writing  poems.
The poems will be  Daffodils and   some extracts taken from the  ballad  " The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner".

English poets shared different views about Art and  I would like my students to read and reflect on the poems by Keats " Ode to a Grecian Urn"  and  " Bright Star" .



   
Here is the Wakelet which I am going to share with my learners.






Evaluation and Tasks related to the unit about Romanticism

The activities done in class will be mainly based on a spoken interaction, this implies that  I will check the students' understanding and their  reading competences.

What I would like them to be able to do:
- to find connections with the time in which  the poets lived and find the main key ideas and differences with the past
- to be able to describe a painting and the emotions  we can share while thinking about  the landscape and the main characters in the painting
- to be able to express themselves by replying to  questions in English both in writing and in speaking tasks
- to use the language and the lexis related to literature and art correctly.
