This PowerPoint provides an introduction to the play "A Raisin in the Sun" by L. Hansberry. Through exploring the 1950s, Hansberry's background, and using the thought-provoking poem, "Harlem" by L. Hughes, students will discuss the American dream.
Who defines the American dream? What is the current American dream? What happens if your dream doesn't happen?
The activity ends with a choice of 3 writing prompts - great for journals, homework, or interactive notebooks.
