Simply print and bring your class to the library/computer lab to complete this jazz musician research assignment. Students can use computers or print books to access information about their chosen musician, and once they learn a sufficient amount of information they are prompted to create a postcard written to that musician. This assignment is perfect for students in grades 5-12.
The aim of the assignment is to get students to really internalize the music and life of the musician they choose to research, and to thoughtfully craft a message to them. The last page of the assignment includes a rubric as well as a space for teacher and student feedback.
