I used this in my 11th grade English class after reading several short stories from the Harlem Renaissance. I wanted to tie the unit to current events, so that students could see the connections between the themes from that time period to today.
The activity contains a list of several different Internet articles that have to do with race and current race relations. Students choose a title, then search for it, and complete the questions while reading. Students evaluate the author's argument and techniques, then respond to the article.
This worked so well in putting a modern perspective on an older time period.
