PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This entertaining and engaging interactive SMART NOTEBOOK lesson (appropriate for grades 4-8) takes elementary music students on a journey through African-American Music and Culture. The journey begins during the Civil War era and continues up through the mid 1900's Jazz era. This particular file is Part 1 of a 3 Part unit. Parts 2 and 3 are also sold as separate files in my TpT store. Genres explored and studied in this unit (Part 1, 2, 3 combined) are as follows:

Introduction to the Unit - (part 1)
Civil War/Underground Railroad/Harriet Tubman/Drinking Gourd - (part 1)
Blues - (part 2)
Ragtime - (part 2)
Jazz (Dixieland, Swing, Be-Bop, and Much More) - (part 3)
Bibliography/Resources/Citations - (part 3)

Activities included in this interactive unit are researching/understanding the significance of the Civil War and the purpose of the Underground Railroad and how music played a huge role in this movement, identifying the characteristics of Ragtime music, identifying why/how the Blues originated, and classifying/labeling/identifying the various forms of Jazz. This file is very large and has multiple forms of media and attachments included. Because of its size, individual chapters/files have been compressed into zip files and are sold in 3 consecutive products (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 are available via my TpT store) and are meant to be sequential lessons . Video & Sound clips, listening maps, suggested websites & children's literature connections are just to name a few. Due to copyright laws, some media files are not attached but directions are given on how to attach them on your own.
