Ideas of The Harlem Renaissance
In the 1920s and 1930s, a major artistic and cultural movement called the Harlem Renaissance was borne out of the Harlem neighbourhood of New York City. During this time, African American artsts, writers, musicians, and thinkers found inspiration and expression in their own unique experience. In the worksheet Ideas of the Harlem Renaissance, children learn what this cultural movement was about, as well as some famous artists who emerged at the time. They then capture what they have read in a graphic organizer. Designed for a third and fourth grader literacy curriculum, Ideas of the Harlem Renaissance helps children understand a unique moment in U.S. history whose influence endures today.
