PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great little poetry lesson that I like to use at the start of an American literature class to help develop the idea of America. The lesson has the students do a close reading of the poems "I Hear America Singing" by Walt Whitman and "I, too" by Langston Hughes to show the developing idea of America in poetry. Students are asked to identify figurative language, tone, and bias as part of the analysis. The assignment culminates with a modernization of Whitman's poem asking students to consider the world we live in today, including the types of people who make up the "heart" of America and and the attitude the student has towards to America.

The zip folder contains a blank student version of the assignment and a teacher's guide with suggestions for student responses.
