African American Poetry: Family and Traditions
Your feedback is important to us!
After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
This unit could be expanded to upper grades by introducing other forms of poetry and using stories and novels that go into more detail. A more in depth study could be done of African American History and how it has affected present day African Americans. Upper elementary students could also to poet studies and they try to write poetry in the style of that poet.
