This is an edited version of Maya Angelou's "Still I Rise". You can have students do a shared reading or a paired reading of the poem. There is a worksheet following the poem that covers rhyme scheme, figurative language, theme, and a short writing assignment. There is a great YouTube video of Denzel Washington introducing Maya Angelou and Oprah Winfrey reciting a couple of her poems. I had my students watch the video before reading the poem.
