Mini-Lesson Series on Amanda Gorman’s “The Hill We Climb”
At the Presidential Inauguration, 22-year-old Amanda Gorman showed the nation what ELA teachers have long known: poetry is powerful and empowering. It’s moving. It’s cool.
Take your students on a standards-driven deep dive into Gorman’s “The Hill We Climb” with our brand new, free lesson series. These five mini-lessons for grades 6-12 fit seamlessly alongside your core instruction and cover many poetic devices, including figurative language, metaphor, remix, and allusions to Broadway’s Hamilton.
Lesson 1 is available now, and new lesson plans will be published every week until March 15, 2021. Here’s a sneak peek at one page of Lesson 1, “The Power of Language in Poetry.”
These mini-lessons are designed to help your students appreciate the poetry of others and to see the poet within themselves.
We’re excited to offer this free lesson plan series on Amanda Gorman’s poem, “The Hill We Climb,” to your students as you continue to engage and inspire the next generation of poets and scholars.
