Introduction Your parents have finally decided to let you go out on a Friday night! You and your friends decide to go to a party you had read about. Earlier that day you and your friends found a business-sized card stuck in your locker. The card looked like this:
Business Card Invitation
You figured “why not? ” and head over to see where these places were located on the highway. The party is nothing like you expected. The bouncer seemed to be at each door. They let you walk in when you show the card and pay the cover charge of fifty cents. You are told that the owners need the money to pay rent. You take in the sights.
You noticed three things right away: there is no furniture, there is a piano player, and everyone there is black. A calendar says the year is 1927. You realize that the small card has somehow transported you away from Camden, AL and to some Harlem house rent party.
Task This party may be different from what you are use to, but you decide to explore. Since your social studies teacher had recently assigned a research project to help the Camden Black History Museum, you figure you may be in luck. You decide to explore the four rooms the people are gathering to see if you can
decide who you’d like research. u Your task is to interview one person in each house to find out why they are icons of the Harlem Renaissance. After you find enough information about each person you can write, your research proposal for your history class. u Here are the houses and the famous Harlem Renaissance icons who have
who have gathered in them:
The Process u u For each Harlem Renaissance icon you choose to ” interview” fill out an interview sheet. This sheet gives you questions that you should ask, and gives you an opportunity to include more information that you may find. After you have completed your
interviews, review your information, and decide who you would like to research. Put this icon’s interview sheet on the top when you turn in your interview sheets. u Fill out a research packet for your icon. Make sure you use at least three online sources and at least one book or magazine as a source. u Remember that you will need to
A bibliography. This can be done using Noodle. Tools or Cite Machine. u Create a “desktop” for the person that you will be researching in depth.
Creating the Desktop u Why the Camden Black History Museum has pictures and documents that relate to Black History, it does not have many items that relate to the Harlem Renaissance. The museum director would like to add to the collection and has offered local students the opportunity to contribute. He has envisioned an
entitled, “Desks of the Decades: Black History in Desktops. ” Using your knowledge of the Harlem Renaissance and your Harlem Renaissance icon, create a three dimensional model of what you think your icon’s desktop would look like. Ask yourself the following questions:
u What pictures might your icon have? u What works of literature might your icon have? u What other items would be on your icon’s desk? Your desk exhibit should showcase your knowledge of the Harlem Renaissance and your icon. For each object that you place on your desk,
The museum director requires that you include an explanation of the object and why it was chosen. The explanations should be typed and included in a separate explanation booklet.
