Revisiting Big Metaphors and Themes: Revising and Beginning to Perform Two-Voice Poems

This Revisiting Big Metaphors and Themes: Revising and Beginning to Perform Two-Voice Poems lesson plan also includes:

Now that your class has read all of Esperanza Rising, take the time to tackle big metaphors and themes. Pupils will participate in an activity called Chalk Talk, in which they circulate around the room in small groups and add comments to charts that are labeled with five metaphors in the novel. Conduct a whole-class discussion on this activity, leaving some time to perform the two-voice poems that were written previously. Part of a well-sequenced series, the lesson will help wrap up the novel and big ideas.
