PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Nathalie Handal wrote the poem, “Caribe en Nueva York” on the experience of being a Latin American immigrant in New York City.

Students will read and annotate the poem and analyze the literary strategies used to convey the poet’s message. Students will view supporting video clips, such as the poet speaking on identity, and a TED TALK on Latino/Latina identity. The students will read and listen to an NPR story on Bomba Estéreo’s new song, "Soy Yo" and its transfixing video. Links to the lyrics in English and the video are included. Also, included is a New York Times video on Latinos and Race and a video on the different types of Spanish by Venezuelan comedian, Joanna Hausmann. Also, there is a link to the New York Times Room for Debate set of 10 articles on immigrants and acceptance as Americans.

There is also an opportunity to write a SIFT analysis, as well as supporting material for teaching this strategy to your students. Included is a lesson on crafting a thesis sentence, as well as an original AP style poetry analysis prompt.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, or AP English Language or Literature class. These three lessons prepare students for AP English Literature exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT 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 fishbowl discussion with the rubric. The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions.
