Product Description
Using Julia Alvarez’s poem, “Ironing Their Clothes,” students will review important poetic devices; close read and annotate the text; view supporting video clips including scenes from “Real Women Have Curves;" and a short film, “Making it in America.” Students will view a TED Talk on gender equality in the household; listen to an NPR story of a boy in India reevaluating gender household chores; and evaluate a writing prompt on the poem. In Alvarez’s poem, a speaker describes her experience ironing her family’s clothes. These lessons prepares students for AP Literature and Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT essay, and critical thinking activities.

In this resource, there is a unique detailed rubric that can be used to score Socratic Seminars in a way that encourages organic fluid discussions. In the guide, there is a step by step explanation on how to conduct a fish-bowl discussion with the rubric. The Socratic Seminar acts as a poetry explication. The packet includes a complete lesson, Common Core standards, and essential and key questions.
