Reflection: Checks for Understanding Analyzing a Poem by Langston Hughes to Help Students Understand How Imagery Creates Tone in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. - Section 2: Building Knowledge

 

I found that using such a descriptive use of figurative language as inn Hughes's poem, A Dream Differed, help my students visualize the imagery and the tone it created in the poem.  I hope this experience of reading and analyzing text will help them in their understanding of the use of imagery to establish tone in The Part-Time Indian.
