During my last 2 weeks of subbing before leaving my old school I was covering the Harlem Renaissance.
the teacher completely left it up to me, so i tried to make sure I included a lot of the components, not just the "English" part.
I showed a few slides shows from Youtube about all the visual arts (paintings, scultpture, etc), did a class on jazz and blues (origin, showed some recordings, analyzed how the music was different in regards to audience, purpose, origin, etc). Learned about the time frame, important people.
Did an overview of all the artform during this era, learned about some of the most important names. Read one story from Zora Neale Hurston, a few poems from several potes, analyzed them all, etc.
There is so much to cover, and literature is just one part of it.
