Study of the beauty and inspiration of Harlem Renaissance literature is essential in any class focusing on American Literature.
Students choose from a list of Harlem Renaissance Writers and prepare a PowerPoint presentation for their classmates.
They are required to do a line by line analysis and a discussion of figurative language, themes, etc.
They are also encouraged to provide a historical context for the piece.
Also included is a brief introduction to Harlem Renaissance writing and the common themes.
The example for the students can be found under my products
"Langston Hughes" PowerPoint.
This Hughes lesson can also stand alone as a class discussion of the poem
"The Negroe Speaks of Rivers."
