This biographical rap project is designed as a group research project for middle school students. Students work in teams to research the life and music of a classical composer. They then write a rap song and perform the song for the class. This project gives students the opportunity to bring the classics into the 21st century. Additionally, this project is a great example of a cross curricular lesson combining music with English Language Arts.
