This project is a great way to study the Harlem Renaissance, Modern Literature, and/or Langston Hughes.

It is designed so that each of the three poems is studied separately. Once that is done, the final portion has students go back to all three poems and analyze them together.

This unit combines Common Core benchmarks with the Smarter Balanced approach to assessment: selected responses, constructive responses, and a performance task.

All answer keys give answers to the multiple-choice questions, and they also give suggested answers to the short-answer questions. There is also a rubric for grading the essay.
