Language Study: Holocaust Poetry (Day 2 of 2)

Unit 16: Informational Texts: Analyzing the Narrative Non-fiction Style of Night
Lesson 4 of 7

Objective: SWBAT apply understanding of how language functions in different contexts to create meaning and tone by doing a close reading of a poem at the word, line and stanza level meaning.

Big Idea: As we continue our study of Holocaust poetry, we will do a communal, out-loud reading of a poem to analyze how meaning changes when you look at the various elements of a poem.
