Product Description
Need an engaging introduction to your poetry unit or Black History Month activities?
Ask your students what happens to a dream deferred? This close reading lesson will guide your class in an exploration of theme development using the TPCASTT poem analysis model.

With foldable interactive notebook pieces and a slideshow presentation that you project on your whiteboard, students will:

♦ Consider the significance of the title
♦ Paraphrase the poem line by line
♦ Discuss connotations of important words
♦ Identify the speaker's tone
♦ Determine the theme of the poem
♦ Analyze the poet's use of rhyme & simile, and their part in developing the theme
♦ Compare the theme of a commercial video that uses the poem
♦ Close read an essay by Langston Hughes that describes life in 1944 Harlem

The lesson includes links to four outside sources:
a copy of "Harlem" on poetryfoundation.org
a YouTube video/audio recording of Hughes reciting the poem
an expository essay by Langston Hughes on newrepublic.com
a YouTube video of a Nike commercial that uses the poem
