"I Hear America Singing
This is Walt Whitman's poem "I Hear America Singing" with a 20-point reading assessment.
There are 5 multiple-choice questions and 4 short-answer questions. The multiple-choice questions range from simple, in-text questions to higher-order-thinking-skills questions that go beyond the text.
The answer key is also included and suggests possible answers for the short answer section.
The 4-page documents are in Word and in PDF, making for 8 pages total.
I use this poem as a cold read during my Romanticism unit. However, you could also use it as a separate lesson on Romantic poetry or on a unit of poetry. It can also be used as an emergency lesson plan for a substitute.
Save $$$: Buy the Bundle
I have a 2-poem bundle pack that includes his poem "I Sit and Look Out." If you buy the bundle pack, it's cheaper than buying each poem's lesson separately.
