~ 40 days

Students will explore the the literary movements of the Harlem Renaissance and Postmodernism in order to analyze the American experience as a reawakening and a re-establishment of identity. This final unit brings the scope full circle and culminates in the Literary Synthesis Essay that asks students to draw connections between American experiences over the course of history. Students will reflect on their own American experiences in the Personal Statement and use discussion to examine the commonalities we share as individuals who identify as American.
