Learn about the Harlem Renaissance
Part of our series of Black History Month resources to educate and engage your class
During Black History Month, we think about the racism Black people experience in the past and the present day, and celebrate Black achievements.
In this resource, suitable for reading ages of 14+, learners study about the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, when Black culture flourished in New York City. The resource includes:
- A rich, descriptive text: learners read a summary of the topic, rich in challenging Tier 2 vocabulary
- Word search: they then search for the vocabulary (which is provided alongside definitions and in-context examples) in a word search
- Questions and points of discussion: these can be used as a writing exercise or as prompts for class discussions
