Mini-unit featuring the first poem in the National Book Award-winning novel in verse, The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo.
In this no-prep unit, your students will be immersed in the lyrical writing of Elizabeth Acevedo, and try their hand at their own "My Neighborhood" poem styled after her "Stoop-Sitting" - the sensory-driven first poem of this electric young adult novel. The unit will culminate in a spoken word poetry performance.
Once you teach this first poem, you will want to teach the entire novel. Look out for more resources that tackle the complexity of the whole book in my TPT store, coming soon!
