During this module, students will focus on determining the theme of a poem using details in the text, including how characters respond to challenges and how the narrator reflects upon a topic. It should be noted that prior to this module, students will have had several instructional opportunities to learn about theme. Reference will be made to this prior instruction. In addition, students will actively participate in the close reading of Langston Hughes’ poem "Mother to Son," focusing on the use of metaphors.
