Seat At the Table
School: Harper Woods High School
Students are reading Walt Whitman and Langston Hughes' poems, "I Hear America Singing" and "I Too" respectively. Through poetic/literary analysis students are learning about historical context, perspective, and motivation within each poem. Students will write their own poetry that is reflective of these ideals. Ultimately, students will show why they deserve a "seat at the table." They will display their work in an open symposium at school.
