We'll work with "We Real Cool" by Gwendolyn Brooks and "Identity" by by Julio Noboa Polanco.
A graphic organizer for figurative language is in your Google Drive. It has links to other resources to help as well.
We will also review your work from last class and get into our Ohana teams.

Req'd Creative Post: Illustrate a powerful line from a poem or song that speaks to you. It may be a poem of your own creation, it may be a favorite song, it may be a poem that you stumble upon at www.poets.org or www.poetryfoundation.org, it may be one of the one's we've worked with in class. Your illustration may be hand drawn, created digitally, or pulled together by finding images from Creative Commons.
Include a brief paragraph of explanation along with your illustration. Post your illustrations by screenshot, laptop cam, phone pics, whatever it takes -- just them out there where other people can see them. Think of this as a chance to explore whether this is one of the projects you'd like to take on for the unit in a greater sense.
