Students will learn about the Harlem Renaissance through pictures and a very short lecture. After, the students will discuss the three poems they read before class. Claude McKay's "Harlem Shadows;" Countee Cullen's "From The Dark Tower;" and Langston Hughes' "I Look at the World." After the students discuss the beauty and bravery of these poems, they will then construct a poem of their own where they will take a stand against a form of oppression and injustice they see within their own lives...
Students will improve their empathy toward the plight of others of feel as if their voice is being oppressed in some shape or form. Students will also learn how to think creatively about these works, while being respectfully about other's opinions. Then, they will learn how to express themselves through poetry.

Please be aware this class will discuss racial injustice in honor of Black History month. There will also be the discussion of oppression in all forms the students feel are important to them. All topics will be kept respectful.
