Traditionally, women writers of the Harlem Renaissance era from Nella Larsen to Jessie Redmon Fauset to Marita Bonner, among others, have been under-represented in criticism both past and present. The concept of the New Negro, after all, was gendered male, excluding the value role that women writers would play in not only challenging the pervasive color line but in calling increased attention to the depths of African-American experience that, as Zora Neale Hurston posits, white publishers would not print.

If I asked you to picture a classroom what would you imagine? How is it organized? Depending on your own educational experience this environment may vary. In the case of a 'traditional' classroom, it seems the organization has not changed. The layout of the classroom should adapt to the topic at hand. This could enhance the students ability to absorb the information being taught.
