In this highly-engaging resource on the Harlem Renaissance, students learn the origins of (and contributors to) the movement that resulted from the Great Migration. Students begin with an introductory text on the Great Migration and Harlem Renaissance with guided questions to review the essential material. Then, students transition to an activity that allows them to learn more about 7 of the major contributors to the Harlem Renaissance. Students will use QR codes to investigate text and videos to learn about the contributions of Duke Ellington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Madame CJ Walker, Langston Hughes, Louis Armstrong, Lois Mailou Jones, and A. Philip Randolph to the Harlem Renaissance in American History. A final writing prompt is included to recap the assignment!
A version is also included to allow students to click links instead of using QR codes in case you are using this on computers!
