These are a bundle of four intensive reading activities using the following poems of Langston Hughes: Cross, Dreams, Mother to Son, and The Negro Speaks of Rivers. Each activity can be an independent activity or lesson or the four can be used together in a unit on poetry or Langston Hughes. Each intensive reading activity focuses students on author's craft and the use of various literary devices, including simile, metaphor and imagery and requires students to make inferences using text evidence. Ideas for differentiation and assessment are included.
