Are you studying the Civil Rights Movement or oppressed populations with your class? Use Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" to connect common themes in literature. After reading the poem, students answer between 9-11 analysis questions offered. Some questions are multiple choice, some require brief explanations, and two longer extension questions are also provided. All questions connect with Common Core State Standards, and readers are required to study specific lines of text to analyze their meaning. You could also use this resource as a quick formative assessment to see how your kids are mastering the new standards.
