Poets of Christmas Past

In this lesson, students consider the meanings of Christmas by reading an op-ed. As a class, they then create a sequel to the poem ?A Visit from Saint Nicholas,? in which ?Mamma? tells a story about the history of Christmas. For homework, they write journal entries that explore the personal dimension of the ideas discussed in the op-ed.
