Thinking Deeply with Art and Poetry (The Kite Runner)

Thinking Deeply with Art and Poetry (The Kite Runner)
Product Description
I love teaching this lesson! I taught most of it on a block day, but it could be stretched to 2-3 days. This lesson focuses on a passage from The Kite Runner that begins on page 240. I incorporated a poem and a painting to get kids thinking deeply about theme across genres and mediums.

The idea comes from a session at NCTE, and I incorporate the term "binaries" to get students thinking about opposites and what can be determined by looking closely at what an author or artist contrasts. From there, I ask them to think about a theme that ties in the poem, painting, and novel.
