Description

This is a close reading of Nina Simone/Weldon Irvine's song, "Young, Gifted, and Black." There are PSAT reading skills aligned questions, as well as three distinct readings of the song using the close reading process.

Possible uses:

  • Novel study on "A Raisin in the Sun" (ELA)
  • Black Power movement (Social Sciences)
