Product Description
This lesson challenges students to analyze how Billy Collins comments on the coming-of-age experience in his poem "On Turning Ten." I have found this lesson to be very effective, as I've used it many times in my 9th and 10th grade classrooms.

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.

I have also included a handout which contains the critical questions that students will answer during the work period. The teacher can simply print out this page and run-off copies of it.
