Our students need to know that behind every successful person is a series of failures. Use this research project to help students learn about the lives of famous musicians (from Classical to Broadway to Pop) and help their social-emotional growth as you go! This is the growth mindset concept taken to the musical level. The documents include a student direction sheet and rubric, a template for the poster and a list of famous musicians. The list of musicians is categorized to suit your classroom needs: Women Musicians, Hispanic Musicians, Black Musicians, Pop Musicians, Jazz/Blues Musicians, Classical Musicians, Composers and Broadway Musicians.
