Here are a few snapshots of your poems in progress as you worked in teams:
After we finished with the time in teams, I shared the actual poem, "I, Too," that Langston Hughes wrote in 1945. (Click on the previous link if you want to read the poem again.) This is a key message in the novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry: that equal rights will become a reality--and that people must stand up and fight for those rights.
For tomorrow, be sure to read Chapter 3 in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.
Our word of the day today was IMPERTINENT, which means rude. And our word of the day from yesterday was VIABLE, which means possible; able to become a reality.
Have a great evening, and delve into Chapter 3 and be moved by its power!
