Product Description

As teachers, we have a unique ability to expose our students to writers from all over the world, from all different cultures, and from all different backgrounds. In this packet, you and your class will dive into Native American poetry as it relates to personal and cultural identity.

Does this sounds scary to you? Whether your answer is "yes" or "no"- I will say "Good"!

In this packet, students will be required to reflect on their own personal and cultural identities and read history of Native American tribes in the United States. They will then read 4 poems by different Native American writers from different tribes and answer reflection and comprehension questions. At the end of the packet, students will then connect history to poetry and the concepts of personal and cultural identity.
