Poets of Christmas Past
Students consider the meanings of Christmas by reading an op-ed. As a class, they then write a sequel to the poem "A Visit from Saint Nicholas," in which "Mamma" tells a story about the history of Christmas. For homework, they write journal entries that explore the personal dimension of the ideas discussed in the op-ed.
