Product Description
This bundle contains all the resources I made for my classes' assignment which took approximately two periods to complete. It could also be done partial/whole as homework. The idea behind it is to give the students tools about the Harlem Renaissance and then they create a postcard home- imagining they are from a small town in 1929 after visiting relatives in NYC. It is part research and part creative writing. My students really enjoyed the assignment and I loved what they come up with. I did a ton of research trying to find maps, photos, and create imaginative instructions while providing historically-based descriptions and scenarios. The centerpiece is a map of "Hot Spots" in Harlem created by W. Ellis Campbell which appeared in Manhattan magazine, but backed it up with more in-depth descriptions as well as cultural places- like William Johnson's art studio. All images are considered Fair Use. The bundle contains the following: 1) 1920s Slang and Expressions Mega List 2) Postcard directions with map (such as where they went, dangers, fashions seen) 3) A Tourist's Guide to Harlem (descriptions of clubs and cultural places) 4) various postcard fronts and backs for 1/2 pg postcard. If you need the directions on Word, let me know. I hope you enjoy this, and FYI the 20s slang is also a free product of mine. Due to some of the darker subject matter of the time (speakeasies, crime, etc...) I would maybe think this is best suited for high schoolers.
