Period 2:

I can recognize and understand themes and issues in a text and how they relate to the time period that the text was written in/about.

Let’s quickly talk about Warren Pryor and we will get into the Ballad of Birmingham BY DUDLEY RANDALL 1914–2000.
Learning targets:
I can decipher meaning from poems.
I can identify the tone, mood, theme, speaker, subject within a poem.

New York Times article
What is irony?

A second major device is irony. The central irony in the poem involves the fact that the mother, in trying to keep her daughter safe, wishes her to go to church rather than to a demonstration, and the girl is killed in church. Subsumed within this irony are lesser ironies: The daughter’s preparations for church become her preparations for death; knowing that her child is “safe” in church causes the mother to smile before the explosion occurs; a church is expected to be a sanctuary, not a place of death.

Please go to your Google Classroom page. There are 4 questions for you to answer on that page. These are due at the end of class tomorrow.
