PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an activity that I created for my American History class that can be done in the classroom or in the computer lab (need access to YouTube).

Students listen to 4 songs (titles listed below) and are to analyze the songs in a graphic organizer and then complete a reflection. They should be able to compare and contrast lyrics/tones from the 1920s and 1930s. Then I follow up the activity with a discussion about the music/tones/lyrics.

Lyric sheets are provided for each of the 4 songs:
"It Don't Mean a Thing" - Louis Armstrong & Duke Ellington
"Dream a Little Dream of Me" - Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong
"Cheer Up! Smile! Nertz!" - Eddie Cantor
"Brother Can You Spare a Dime" - Bing Crosby
