Teaching Like a Pirate

I continue with my teaching goal of engaging learners and teaching like pirate.  Today I used a special props hook to start our American Lit unit on the Fireside Poets. This week, we discussed themes in 19th century poetry and the Fireside Poets.  Then sitting around a bonfire, we shared interpretations of the poems that they explicated and ate roasted marshmallows!
