If this poem sounds familiar, it’s a parody of Longfellow’s ‘Midnight Ride’, a colorful poem about the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.

Two of our Master Teachers have written great lessons featuring the Midnight Ride.

Check them out:

  • Andrea Mills, an 8th grade ELA Master Teacher from Raleigh, North Carolina, teaches this lesson about how lines of incidents in a poem propel the action, aspects, and decisions of Paul Revere.

  • Master Teacher Devon O’Brien, who teaches 8th grade ELA in Leonardtown, Maryland, wrote this Paul Revere lesson which helps students identify and describe three elements of narrative poetry and apply that knowledge to a poem.
