Pick the arrow and the song

  1. 1. The Arrow and the Song Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Friendship is a vital element of life inside and outside of school. As such, it is important to teach students the importance of being a good friend. In The Arrow and the Song Longfellow describes the positive and negative things that we do in our lives as an arrow and a song. In addition, he implies that even if the first person does not remember their deed; the second person or the recipient will remember the actions long after. This poem would impact the reader to think about their choices and to act accordingly. As a result, I would use this poem as a character builder of the word friendship. It would also be able to adapt to the classroom if there is an issue with some friends bullying or being inconsiderate. I would incorporate the poem cross-curricular into math. I would ask the students to monitor their interactions between their selves and their peers in one day. Next, they would create a graph of the positive things they do for friends compared to the negative way that they act towards their peers. This will show them how many times they interact with others. In addition to, how they behave while they interact. The grades in which I would use this poem are 3-6. This choice is due to its complexity and abstractness.
