Passing Group Research Activity

Presentations due Thursday, February 26

 As a way to prepare to read Passing, you will be divided into groups that will take an active part in researching and learning more about topics related to the book as a means of improving reading comprehension and getting the most out of what you read. 

 Your research will be shared with the class, making it possible for everyone to learn and/or understand more about the references made by Nella Larsen in Passing thereby helping you better understand what you read. All information will be presented to the class orally with some type of visual aid.

Each group will be assigned one of the following topics:

Harlem Renaissance: Dates, definition, & significance

Plessy v. Ferguson (1896)
: Definition & significance

Brown v. Board of Education (1952-1954):
Definition & significance

Roaring Twenties
: Social & cultural aspects; significance

The Great Migration (1920’s Harlem)
: Definition & significance



Each presentation is worth 40 points. These points will be allotted in the following way: 20 group peer points, 20 instructor points. Grades by peers will be done anonymously.

Each group will be graded on the following:

1)    Content & Information

2)    Visual Aid
