Need an engaging text to study for Black History Month and/or your poetry unit? 


I did some searching for you and have combined a few sources together for a one/two day lesson. 


This resource includes:

-Google Slideshow going over what a poet laureate is, video links to who Amanda Gorman is and her reading of her poem during the 2021 presidential inauguration. 

-A two-page analysis guide for the poem

-A poetry writing assignment and rubric 


Once you open the document, go to "file", "make a copy".
