Teaching Unit for Lauren K. Alleyne’s Honeyfish

This 10-day unit is created by Brian Hannon, Director of Secondary Curriculum for LMSvoice. He currently teaches AP Literature , AP Language , and Team-Taught English 11 in Alexandria, Virginia. Brian was the co-founder of the poetryN.O.W., and through his involvement with this organization, Brian went on to found the two largest youth poetry events in his area, the Hyper Bole and Louder than a Bomb. When poetryN.O.W. was absorbed by Split This Rock, a non-profit organization in Washington D.C. that meets at the intersection of poetry and social justice, Brian served as their Youth and Education Development Fellow.

Special thank you to Lauren K. Alleyne for sharing, too!

If you like this unit, there is so much more poetry-teaching goodness (including more lessons for teaching Alleyne’s work!) to be discovered on the LMS Voice Curriculum Database. I can’t emphasize enough how amazing this resource is. It’s completely free; you just have to sign up.

Thanks for reading! If you have a lesson, activity, or resource you’d like to share as a guest post, please email me at msmith@lncharter.org. Teaching is so much easier when we all help and support each other. Thank you for all you do!
