Langston Hughes~~Poetry Unit Study

We have been studying Langston Hughes over the last two weeks. I used activity #1 from this site as a guide. This lesson is for my 2nd and 8th grader.

Day 1 …we read a short biography about Langston Hughes.
Day 2…we chose one of his poems to recite.
Day 3…we began working on the tri-fold brochure on his life.
Day 4…we practiced reciting our poems out loud and continued working on our brochure.
Day 5…We printed our brochures and recited our poems.
