We finished up our third of three poems today, one by Langston Hughes, again practicing paraphrase and discussing the three tools of the poet. After this, students completed their first assignment in Google Classroom — find a poem in one of the books or magazines provided, type it up, and write a short response. Students who finished early also completed a pre-writing exercise from their chosen poems. Homework: finish typing up your poem if you didn’t get it done in class.
