Product Description
Add this unique lesson to your Chains unit by connecting the Revolutionary era setting to Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Birds Sing." Students complete a series of close readings of the complex poem to uncover the thematic connections between the poem and the novel. Students work in pairs to create poems based on the idea of a "caged bird," as it relates to the two main character sides in Chains.

This product includes a detailed Lesson plan for roughly 4 days (depending on the length of class periods), Activator Questions, Summarizer Handouts, a close reading and corresponding questions for "Caged Bird" poem, poem template, writing assessment, suggested answer keys for all questions, final writing assessment, suggested writing response, and alignment to Common Core Standards.
