“I, Too” Project

On Tuesday, we’ll study some poetry written by a man named Langston Hughes, and you will write a poem using one of his famous ones (“I, Too”) as a model. It should be fun and challenging, and it’s related to Ethnic Studies.

To prepare for tomorrow’s project, please do the following activities:

Watch the Brainpop movie on the Harlem Renaissance, and do the quiz, challenge and time zone x. Be sure to submit your results to the the teacher.

Then watch these two videos about Langston Hughes. Write down three things you think are important or interesting about him, and give the paper to Ms. Sanchez (you may have to sign in to your Google account in order to watch the second video):

After you complete these activities, you may go to any Brainpop movie and do it for extra credit.
