I reviewed this resource as part of the Culturally Responsive Teaching Hub Academy. This resource presents a poem by Langston Hughes and gives students some background information on the Lincoln Memorial. It is not immediately clear from what is posted here what student's prior knowledge about Hughes or the Harlem Renaissance is. To improve the relevance of the lesson for students, more time could be spent on the cultural aspects of the poem and of Hughes' work rather than on Lincoln and the monument. It seems to center Lincoln, and in turn whiteness, instead of Hughes and the African American experience.

Engagement: Limited (1)

This resource has the beginnings of analysis to build critical consciousness of power, equality and justice. It does not yet contain sections to value the identity of each student

Accuracy: Strong (2)

This resource strongly compares multiple perspectives, including traditionally marginalized ones. The resource does not yet present a lens of critical consciousness that also explicitly names why multiple perspectives have been historically excluded.

Prior knowledge is not clear but can be inferred based on the grade level and subject of the poem.

Clarity: Superior (3)

This resource has been made more user-friendly for teachers (or targeted learners) by creating a step-by-step PowerPoint for teachers to guide their students in analysis of the text.
