READY TO USE LESSON PLANS

The introductory lesson to Whitman's "O Captain! My Captain!" challenges students to determine the speaker, audience, and occasion of the poem in order to provide an objective summary. This text is a CCLS recommended text, and the questions are aligned to Common Core Standards. I have found this lesson to be very effective, as I've used it many times in my 11th grade classroom. The lesson, which can be used as is by teachers or modified to fit their purposes, consists of an Aim, Do Now, Preview of Pertinent Vocabulary, a Reading Period, a Work Period consisting of rigorous, higher-order, text-dependent questions, an Exit Question, and a Homework assignment-- all of which are aligned to the lesson's Aim.

The second lesson to Whitman's "O Captain! My Captain!" challenges students to analyze how Whitman uses the literary technique/writing strategy of repetition in order to convey the central ideas in the poem.

The third lesson challenges students to analyze how Whitman uses the literary technique/writing strategy of extended metaphor in order to convey the central ideas in the poem.

This product also includes a ready-to-use copy of the poem, which contains footnotes consisting of definitions of rigorous vocabulary words. This will provide an additional scaffold for all learners to access the text.
