A Raisin in the Sun
This project was developed as part of the Title III Technology Literacy Challenge Grant’s
Capital Region Collaboration for Technology Education.
This Multimedia project covers topics relevant to the African American culture from 1950 to today and includes the video “A Raisin in the Sun”. The issues of higher education, integration and family structure addressed are still relevant today and confront families of all races.
This project is best suited to grades 6-12, and fits well within the Social Studies Curriculum, especially Civics, Citizenship and Government. A variety of activities are included and would work well for an integrated lesson combining English and Social Studies. Activities use the DBQ format.
A computer, LCD projector, computer printer, and Internet access would be required to use this project.
English Language Arts

As listeners and readers, students will collect data, facts, and ideas; discover relationships, concepts, and generalizations; and use knowledge generated from oral, written, and electronically produced texts. As speakers and writers, they will use oral and written language that follows the accepted conventions of the English language to acquire, interpret, apply, and transmit information.
Standard 2: Language for Literacy Response and Expression Students will read and listen to oral, written, and electronically produced texts and performances from American and world literature; relate texts and performances to their own lives; and develop an understanding of the diverse social, historical, and cultural dimensions the texts and performances represent. As speakers and writers, students will use oral and written language that follows the accepted conventions of the English language for self-expression and artistic creation.
