Reflection: Adjustments to Practice This Land is Your Land close read and literacy centers - Section 4: Closure


Scholars did not have any difficulty in drawing pictures of or listing what or who they might see as they walked across the U.S.A.  But, when it came to writing another verse to the song, they struggled.  Perhaps, we need to spend more time on poetry and song writing or perhaps the unfamiliar genre of folk song music did not motivate them.  I am still glad I exposed them to this historic song and helped them to appreciate the many different beautiful sights our nation has to offer.  Hopefully, they will gain more of an appreciation for the song and living in our nation as they grow older.
