Product Description
This product is for a PowerPoint presentation with handouts for the Iroquois folktale, "Song of the Hermit Thrush".

First is a 14 slide PowerPoint presentation to correspond with the Native American folktale, "Song of the Hermit Thrush" as found in the book, "Legends of the Iroquois".

The presentation begins with a clip of the bird and then goes through the questions and analysis that correspond with the story. There is a Whitman poem that is compared and contrasted to the story. Then, there are a series of leveled questions to correspond with the poem and book. Finally, there is a creative writing prompt.

There is also a printable handout with this lesson. The worksheet contains a poetry link with comparisons and vocabulary embedded within. It also contains leveled questions, some multiple choice or short response, with a graphic organizer, and creative writing prompt to conclude. It is ready to print and use. I would take one class period for a middle school ELA class.

You need a copy of the story for this lesson. I use the book "Legends of the Iroquois". The story is not included in this product.
