Poetry analysis #GoogleExpeditions Lesson KS3 KS4

This #GoogleExpeditions lesson develops student skills in analysing poetry.

Students study the poem The New Colossus, by Emma Lazarus, and compare the poet’s use of language with 360 degree imagery of Ellis Island. Evocative use of language conjures the experience of new immigrants arriving in America. How is Ellis Island presented as a beacon of hope?

Google Expeditions are immersive 360 degree photo stories designed for use in the classroom. For more see: https://www.google.com/edu/expeditions/
