About Life: The Photographs of Dorothea Lange Going to the Promised Land

This resource also includes:

To better understand the migrant experience during the Great Depression, pupils analyze two primary resources: photographs by Dorothea Lange and a U.S. Map that shows the Dust Bowl. They compare and contrast Lange's images to Steinbeck's works. Using these, a U.S. map, and a newspaper article from 1937, they discuss their findings and write their responses. This instructional activity includes worksheets, a comparison rubric, and suggested extensions for the initial assignment.
