PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Connect poetry to your American Literature curriculum! This would be an excellent lesson for National Poetry Month. Addressing all English CCSS strands, the unit encourages critical thinking by requiring students to synthesize texts with universal themes. Students explore themes of individuality, inequality, heritage, and freedom in classic American poems including Naming Myself by Barbara Kingsolver, I Hear America Singing by Walt Whitman, and I, Too by Langston Hughes. Handouts for poems focus on before, during, and after reading strategies.

The 18 page product file includes the following: lesson procedures with ideas for differentiation, contextual reading guides, the texts of four poems, graphic organizers, and detailed keys.

Please note that this lesson is an individual component of a larger product that encompasses an entire unit on American Voices. The unit also incorporates a poetry writing activity (Inspired Writing Identity Poem Freebie). If interested, here is the link to the unit:
