This sheet has students connect to the feelings and themes in "Internment" and see if the theme is similar to the theme of "Hope is the Thing with Feathers" by Emily Dickinson. Students will first read and analyze the message, diction and theme of "Internment". They will then decide if the hope described in "Internment" is similar to the hope described in Dickinson's poem.
I have an excellent activity sheet for "Hope..." that you can do before you do this one! This hits the standard where we have to compare texts with similar messages.
Read this poem during a Holocaust unit or after reading FDR's Pearl Harbor Speech to give students a view of what happened in America during that time. Many students don't realize that America had internment camps.
