Product Description
Using Martín Espada’s poem, “The Trouble Ball students will review important poetic devices, close read and annotate the text, view supporting video clips, listen to an NPR Fresh Air interview, view a TED Talk on a teenager who brought a bit of justice to wronged Negro League ball players, a link to evaluate a writing prompt on adversity from the 2009 AP English Language exam where you can view student sample essays with explanations and rubrics. The adversity that Black baseball players experience in the poem and lessons fits the essay prompt well. 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, essential and key questions.
