This lesson is great. However, many student will need more time to grapple with and discuss the texts, especially Angelou's. Some of my students who are struggling readers enjoyed the Hughes and Whitman poems, however. I have used this lesson within the context of a unit on poetry, and unit on "The American Dream." for both 10th and 11th graders.
