MOTHER TO SON BY LANGSTON HUGHES PRESENTATION & ASSIGNMENTS
Introduce Mother To Son by Langston Hughes with this ready to use resource. The extended metaphor poem is a monologue from a mother to a son. The mother uses a metaphor of a set of stairs to advise her son to keep climbing, no matter how difficult life becomes. This makes a great Mother's Day lesson plan, but can be used at any time of the year!
