Product Description
After reading Jean Toomer's poem in One Last Word by Nikki Grimes, I was inspired to make this lesson where students are examining the Golden Shovel poetry form. The lesson includes:
+An objective
+Common Core Standards
+A warm up activity
+Note-taking on the poetry form
+A partner activity (a close reading/analysis activity)
+An individual activity where they create their own poem
+TWO closure activities to pick from

When you purchase this resource, you will get:
+A PowerPoint presentation that will take you through each portion of the lesson
+A PDF and Word version of the activity sheets

I really love this lesson, my students love this lesson, and the poems are beautiful. It's perfect for Black History Month!
