Product Description
Challenge your students by guiding them through close readings of two poems, "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost and "Harlem (Dream Deferred)" by Langston Hughes. Then facilitate their understanding of the speakers’ attitudes and central themes as they construct connections between the poems. These classic texts help meet expectations of Common Core Standards and provide practice with a prose constructed response.

Activity handouts focus on before, during, and post-reading strategies. Furthermore, a think aloud example models the skill of annotation to help scaffold instruction.

After reading, students write an essay that imitates the style of the PARCC literary analysis task. Whether or not they will face PARCC assessments, this lesson provides instruction for any students needing practice with close reading. Furthermore, this lesson incorporates all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Standards.
