title MOTHER TO SON by Langston Hughes .But before we discuss the poem let us
first know who the genius behind the poem is. He is Langston Hughes a black
American and was born on February 1, 1902, in Joplin, Missouri. He published his
first poem in 1921. He attended Columbia University, but left after one year to travel.
His poetry was later promoted by Vachel Lindsay, and Hughes published his first
book in 1926. He went on to write countless works of poetry, prose and plays, as well
as a popular column for the Chicago Defender. He died on May 22, 1967. Now that
we have known who Langston Hughes is, lets unlock the difficult words inside the
poem before we tackle it. III.PROCEDURE/Activity : Guide the students to the
context of the poem by unlocking the difficult words. Engage them to active control in
playing the FAST AND FURIOUS where they will form a small group. Ask them to
count in number heads one to four and join with their groups using their group sign
numbers. Make them choose a group representative, reporter as well as a group yells
for the group presentation. I want you to count one to four number head starts here.
Go to your group using group sign numbers don’t make unnecessary noise to avoid
minus score. From your group choose a group representative to play in our game call
the FAST AND FURIOUS, a reporter as well as a group yell for your group
presentation. You may join to your group now Group sign number: Group 1: Group 2:
Group 3: Group 4: Engage the group representative in playing the FAST AND
FURIOUS call them to form a line in the starting point. Clarify the mechanics/
Instruction in playing the game. All group representatives please come in the starting
point to play the FAST AND FURIOUS. Instruction: Each word has its corresponding
meaning. Every score you will have will depend on the correct answers you got from
the unlocking of difficulties in our game call FAST and FURIOUS. When the correct
meaning of the word is given the group representative should ask anyone from the
group to use the unlock word into a sentence for additional points. NOTE: You can
only place and get the corresponding answer of the word under the signal "GO". One
correct answer is equivalent to one point. WORD MEANING Crystal----------- a
single grain or mass of a crystalline substance
