“Harlem” by Langston Hughes: SIFT Analysis

Happy Friday! Today, we will read and analyze Langston Hughes’s poem, “Harlem.” The play we are about to start, A Raisin in the Sun, includes this poem on the title page. We will use the SIFT method to analyze our poem for symbolism, imagery, figurative language, tone, and theme. Since we have completed a few poetry analyses together, today, it’s your turn to analyze with your team members!

Please see the presentation below if you were not in class or need a refresher:
