English A30 – Natural and Constructed Worlds

This is the first lesson in a nine day unit for English A30. The unit explore natural and constructed worlds. This lesson focuses on those concepts in the poem “Rivers Run” by Birk Sproxton. The poem is about the Saskatchewan River and the prairie landscape of Canada.

Use a map to give students a visual of how the river runs across the provinces and how the different places mentioned are connected.

The activity chart in the lesson plan is used to build up a stronger background knowledge of the places mentioned in the text and to begin a discussion of their relevance.
