Activity Overview


While reading A Raisin in the Sun, students will inevitably be thinking about their own future dreams and plans, and might be wondering about obstacles that can get in the way. Depending on a student’s race, culture, background, gender identity, and class, their dreams may differ greatly from other students’. Have your students use the Storyboard Creator to make a five-cell depiction of their future dreams and plans. Have them explain what motivated them or prompted them to decide on these dreams, and have them include some fears of obstacles that might get in the way. Have the students present their storyboards and then engage in a class discussion of why dreams are important to have, and to follow.
