A. Poetry Share with Someone from Another Research Team (7 minutes)
- Ask students to pair up with someone from another research team. Distribute the Poetry Share Task Card.
- Invite students to read the instructions with you.
- Invite students to follow the directions to share their “inside out” and “back again” poems.
- Refocus the whole group. Ask students to Think-Pair-Share:
* “So what do you now know about refugees?”
* “Where do they come from in terms of place?”
* “When do they come from in terms of time?”
* “What do you know about the possible emotional journey of refugees, as they turn ‘inside out’ and ‘back again’?”
- Listen for students to explain that refugees come from all over the world and from different places in time and that they often turn “inside out” as they flee and find home and turn “back again” as they begin to adapt and settle in to life in their new country.
- Be prepared for students to mention that perhaps not all refugees do turn “back again.” If this occurs, ask students to Think-Pair-Share:
* “Why do you think some refugees do not turn ‘back again’?”
* “From what you have read in the informational texts, how can we help refugees turn ‘back again’?”
- Collect the “Inside Out” and “Back Again” poems and all of the student materials: Research Guide, poem organizers, and rough drafts of both poems.
- Distribute Homework: Inside Out & Back Again Review.
