Today in class the core students continued to analyze the poem Harlem 2 by Langston Hughes by looking at the symbolism in the poem. We looked back at the graphic organizer and started organizing our thoughts into paragraphs.

The advanced class looked at the short story Thank You Ma’am also by Langston Hughes. We discussed some of the symbolism and the allusions in the text. The kids did an awesome job analyzing the text! Tomorrow we will discuss the theme.
