Product Description

Students find this exploration of Harlem Renaissance poets both challenging and fun. Collaboration creates confidence as students research poet biographies, annotate poems, generate handouts and questions for their classmates, create visual representations of poems, and man expert stations to guide peers through their poet’s work.

The following are the poets and poems included in this activity:

  • Langston Hughes, “The Negro Speaks of Rivers”

  • Claude McCay, “If We Must Die”

  • Countee Cullen, “From the Dark Tower”

  • Arna Bontemps, “A Black Man Talks of Reaping”

  • Georgia Douglas Johnson, “The Heart of a Woman”

  • James Weldon Johnson, “Deep in the Quiet Wood”

  • Jean Toomer, “Song of the Son”

You can add or remove poems from the packet as you wish.

To begin, students are provided with instructions to prepare their group presentation:

  • Research and summarize poet biography
  • Annotate the poem
  • Create handout with critical thinking questions (examples provided)
  • Create a visual representation of the poem

Following are directions for presentations:

  • Read the poet biography
  • Recite the poem
  • Present the visual representation
  • Man stations (Biography, Annotation, Analysis, Application, and Influence)

Students travel in their groups from station to station where experts discuss the poem and handout questions.

There is an activity to complete during their “wait time.” This activity has students choose a musician, artist, or author of the Harlem Renaissance, research, and provide a summary. My students have iPads; if yours do not you can provide books or encyclopedias for them to work with.

Also included in this resource are station signs and “finished” flags.

I’ve included an annotated version of each of the poems as a teacher guide and tips for setting up the activity.

A rubric is included.

Please look at the preview to see the resource.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
