What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

A Dream Deferred
by Langston Hughes

Welcome class this year we are going to read and deconstruct Langston Hughes's "A Raisin in the Sun".  This great piece of literature will be a great tool for us to be able to write our weekly Journals and 4 major writting projects.  These projects are:

1. Position paper due at the end of the first semester

2. White paper due at the end of the second semester

3. Reflective paper due at the end of the third semester

4. Final project - a book report using the assigned text "A Raisin in the Sun"
