Product Description
This soundtrack project allows for a fun way for your students to connect with Herman Melville's Billy Budd by creating a list of songs that will be used for a film version of the novel. They’ll do this by linking songs of their choosing to themes, character insights, and moods that come up in the novel.

Contains full instructions for the students, a simple rubric for grading the project, a student sample, and tips on how best to use this project in your unit. Can also be modified to fit just about any story.

Helps students achieve Common Core literacy standard 7:
Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.

Also helps achieve Common Core Writing standard 2:
Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas, concepts, and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.
