Title: Louder than a Bomb
Unit Plan Overview: Students will learn about the power of words. In order to explore this idea, students will close read multiple texts (including famous speeches) through different lenses. The students will also learn about the impact that figurative language can hold in rhetoric. Students will be exploring the power of words through different categories such as perception, reality, empowerment, bridge builders, promoting change, and security. Students will write a both a group poem and an individual poem that deals with one of the aforementioned categories exploring the power that their words can have on others. Students will also be expected to write an analysis essay in response to one of the close reads. Finally, students will present these poems at a “Poetry Slam.”
