Grade 11 ELA Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 6

Boy Asking Question

In this lesson, the End-of-Unit Assessment, students engage in an evidence-based discussion of Browning’s choices about introducing and developing the Duke over the course of “My Last Duchess.” This discussion will prepare students to draft a one-paragraph analysis of how the revelation at the end of the poem impacts the development of the Duke’s character over the course of the poem.
