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:
You can add or remove poems from the packet as you wish.
To begin, students are provided with instructions to prepare their group presentation:
Following are directions for presentations:
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.
