Product Description
Where I'm From: Poetry Analysis and Writing Workshop

This unit plan is designed to give your students a complete experience with George Ella Lyon’s poem “Where I’m From.” It contains two PDF lesson documents, designed to last two days each.
In the first lesson, students analyze the poem, going through four rounds of close reading, each with a different guiding question. Then students write a literary analysis paragraph on the connotation of childhood presented in the poem, using textual evidence in their response.
In the second lesson, students write their own version of a “Where I’m From” poem, create a draft, finalize the draft and present it to the class. The lesson also includes a guided feedback component where students peer review the poems of three other students, with each round focused around a specific writing topic.
This unit aligns to CCSS Anchor Standards R1 (cite evidence), R2 (determine the theme or central idea) and R4 (determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text), as well as W2 (write narratives).
