Lesson Unit: Poetry of Home, Palestine and Israel

In this unit, students will compare poetry from Israeli and Palestinian poets; analyze the effect of genre on ideas of conflict and emotion; and create found poetry from newspaper articles. It aims to answer the essential questions of how and why people relate to art, as well as how poetry can help people understand and heal from conflict. This unit is designed for middle and high school students and can be implemented in seven to eight class periods.
