How do differing print illustrations of Jim

advertisement
How do differing print illustrations of Jim
represent changing attitudes of society toward race?
Context: It is important to understand the nature of Jim’s character while reading The Adventures of
Huckleberry Finn. Though the novel and Jim’s character have always remained the same, society and
its views have not.
Directions: Go to Google Classroom and locate the PowerPoint titled, “Representations of Jim”. The
PowerPoint features five print illustrations of Jim that have appeared in various editions of the
novel since the early 1900s. As you examine the images, record your observations and try to
connect it to a specific decade based off of what you know about history and what you see in the
illustration. You will discuss your thoughts in small groups momentarily.
