Product Description
This poetry and info text close reading lesson is designed to spark a deep discussion and analysis of poetry. Students will explore the idea of entitlement v. gratitude in this country as they dig deeply into the layers of this beautiful poem. The subtly ironic tone of this lesson will challenge your students to reflect on their own lives and choices.

Its ultimate goal is for students to be able to delineate how theme develops and how two different texts can share the same theme. With the modern video “lecture talk” as one of the texts, students will be able to make connections and see relevancy to their world as well.
