Product Description
In this PowerPoint, students will be asked to analyze and interpret Kipling's "The White Man's Burden" along with three pieces of imperialistic artwork from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The activity has students work in groups to analyze the poem and art, and then switch groups for a class discussion. Questions for the poem and the art work are included (I had my students repeat the questions for the art with each picture). This activity was designed for a 10th grade class, to accompany the conclusion of Achebe's "Things Fall Apart," but can be used on its own as part of unit on world cultures, imperialism, or how to evaluate written and visual arts. The artwork included in the PowerPoint has links to their websites; a copy of "The White Man's Burden," is not included, but can be found easily online, if it is not in your textbooks.
