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 am a retired educator who recently completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. My dissertation topic and research was how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.
