This presentation weaves together individual and group work, as well as, music, research, literary connections, and creative writing. Students will work together to present their research based on a song the teacher chooses. Included in this presentation packet is the assignment, an outline with a check-off sheet for students, a rubric, and a list of songs. The song list includes a wide variety of genres, artists, and time periods.
Students will enjoy working together on this project. I have used this project with my tenth grade students for the last four years, and each year it is their favorite activity. Many students have also commented about how much they learned about cooperative learning, creative writing, and research.
