Product Description
This is part of Reading Through History's unit covering the Roaring Twenties. In this download there are three separate lessons dealing with the legendary Jazz performers of the era. The first lesson covers the life and musical influence of Louis Armstrong. The second lesson explains Duke Ellington's rise to fame as a performer and composer, while the third describes the rise and fall of the Cotton Club in Harlem. For each lesson there is a one page reading activity followed by reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. This download includes enough material to cover up to three days in a standard 50 minute class period.

*My students typically complete the work in about 30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
