In this activity, students analyze the conversation that Beneatha Younger and Joseph Asagai have about the way that humans make progress over time. Students look at three direct quotations, interpret meaning, and draw conclusions to formulate opinions based on text evidence.
In my classroom, this activity sparked passionate debate and conversation into the central themes of the text.
