April Newsletter 4-4-16
April is National Poetry Month!
Throughout this unit, we will be reading, writing and analyzing the different forms of poetry, while focusing on a mini unit on Langston Hughes and the Harlem Renaissance. Additionally, students are reading Heartbeat by Sharon Creech, which works beautifully with this unit.
This unit is filled with opportunity for student expression, taking a deeper look into poetry and the written word, while also giving students some room for creativity and a chance to make connections with other writers, both past and present.
*Looking ahead, students will be finishing off the year reading and acting out Thorton Wilder's Our Town! Keep your eye out for more next month!*
