Product Description
Students read, discuss, and analyze 8 Langston Hughes poems, selected for their fame but also for the variety of styles and social commentary they represent. I like to have students work in pairs to break down the text (each poem is fairly short) and then meet with another pair to compare their thoughts. After this, each student selects the poem and a specific lyric that stood out to them, and takes a stab at creating a visual that represents that lyric. This step is always entertaining, whether students can draw or not, and students always impress me with their creativity, even those who complain that they "cannot draw". I thoroughly enjoy this activity.
