Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes

I love Langston Hughes poetry. I used to use it in my teaching. I shifted between poem and modified a unit on the poetry of the Harlem Renaissance which brought in other poets, the blues, hip-hop. etc. Hughes’ metaphors are so powerful and life-like. The students enjoyed Mother to Son.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
