PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Multi genre lesson using Lorraine’s Hansbury’s A Raisin in the Sun and Langston Hughes’ “Harlem” to find the American Dream

This presentation briefly explains the background of Hansbury and her play, “A Raisin in the Sun”. It also includes a copy of Hughes’ poem, “Harlem”.

Students are asked to discuss how they would describe the American Dream. Who defines that? Who or what can prevent you from achieving it?

The end of the slides contains a writing prompt based on this discussion.

Incorporating multiple genres (play and poem) meet Common Core State Standards.

Having a discussion component and then a project/activity to go with it helps students get ready for the Smarter Balance test (or other state tests).

You do NOT have to have read the play to do these activities.

The poem is included in this purchase. The prompt can be used with or without requiring students to refer to primary documents of literature.
