Description

Looking for a compelling poetry lesson to get your students thinking about how they can spark a change in their own worlds?

This poetry lesson on Marge Piercy’s poem “The Birthday of the World” is a great supplement to your unit on Night by Elie Wiesel, Diary of Anne Frank, or to your unit on contemporary poetry, Jewish culture, or the New Year.

When you teach your students the lesson on this powerful, accessible, and engaging poem, you will:

  • Empower different learning styles with group work, close reading, and dynamic discussions.

  • Engage your classes in a critical thinking by using the ready-to-go discussion questions.

  • Easily teach the unit online using the ready-to-go instructions, links, handouts, and forms all optimized for google classroom.

  • Fulfill common core requirements with fascinating, low-key activities.

  • inspire your students to become change-makers in their own worlds

Included in this resource are 7 freewrite prompts, 4 interactive notebook activities, and 17 questions for close reading and discussion of the poem as well as an extensive answer key for all questions. The unit has also been optimized for distance teaching with Google Classroom.

There are no lectures or power points here—students will do the work themselves, with guidance from their teacher. Rather than telling them what the poem means, you will be empowering your classes with the confidence and skills to tackle challenging texts on their own.

The poem is not included in the resource because of copyright.
