Harlem Renaissance Collection Celebration June 14, 2018

This Collection . . .

Harlem Renaissance is a collection of resources that celebrates American history through the lens of the Harlem Renaissance.  Jazz, art, poetry, night life are the  __ of the day  A time when the arts were at the top of popular culture  . . .


How This Collection is Used in My School

This collection is used to celebrate the town of Harlem, the town where the collection is housed.  Through this collection students are encouraged to use the inquiry process to delve into the rich history of Harlem and how the town is an intricate part of the American story.  Students of all ages, from preschool to adult readers, will be allowed access the resources from a variety academic levels and interest.

The housed resources start the conversation and are used as topic/theme motivators for further inquiry.
