This resource is a great way to introduce your students to Langston Hughes. It includes:
-- a pre-reading vocabulary activity,
-- four biographical reading passages with questions (comprehension and language), and
-- a page of short essay-answer questions.
Students do not have to have read Hughes’ works to complete the activities in this product and of course the activities can be used over more or less than five days, as it suits the teacher and the needs of the class.
The passages are:
“Young Langston Hughes”,
“Hughes in the World”,
“Hughes’ Rise as a Writer”,
and “Hughes’ Final Years”.
Each one is between 400 and 500 words in length. I have also included the four biographical passages as one continuous reading text if the teacher prefers to use the material this way.
The comprehension and language questions with the reading passages can be used in class as bellringer/warm-up activities.
A full answer key is included.
Sources of information about Langston Hughes are books and reputable websites. A list of sources is included.
