Poetry!!

  • Protesting is an American thing to do...
  • Does reading poetry give it new meaning?
  • Begin word bank for terminology
    • In small groups, think about your term and discuss why it is important in creating meaning in poetry.
    • Define the term, using your own words. Don't rely on the internet; if you're totally lost, ask me!
    • After you've discussed, let's record your ideas and use them to develop our understanding of "poetry as protest" (i.e. apply them to Hughes!)
