Helloooo America Lit!
I was gone today to Comic Con so we had a sub. After the DOL, we read aloud the poem, "Let America Be America Again" by Langston Hughes. We discussed the audience of the poem and the purpose of the poem. We talked about Hughes' background and then applied his message to us today.
We did a writer's notebook on America and whether or not it was becoming a dystopia. We discussed the ideas in groups and then did a whole class discussion and shared our thoughts. Attached below is the text and discussion.
