This PPT and printable article combo is a multi-class period bundle to be used at the end of a reading of the classic O. Henry story, The Gift of the Magi. Students will learn about Blues music and listen to samples (links included in the PPT). They will read an article about Blues music, including a study of the scales.
This is a fabulous extension project for those higher level classes that just yearn to learn something more, something different.
The PPT will guide your presentation with the students and the article is a document they can highlight, mark, and extract text from.
