PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Common Core mini-unit is always a hit with my fifth-graders. We usually use this lesson as an introduction to the Reading Street story about immigration, SHUTTING OUT THE SKY. In this SMART lesson, through the reading of the poem "The New Colossus," we compare and contrast the Statue of Liberty and the Colossus of Rhodes. We also analyze the poem itself line-by-line. We look at text structure, symbolism, and the use of figurative language. There is also a partners Close Reading Activity included. At the end of the lesson we compare and contrast The New Colossus with the lyrics of Neil Diamond's song America. There are many writing opportunities included throughout the SMART file. I'm sure your students will enjoy this fast-paced and interesting mini-unit as much as mine do.
