Product Description
This is a full unit on Ballads.

This would take about a week to complete.

At the end, I always offer students the opportunity to perform their ballads for bonus marks. If they choose to SING their ballad they receive BONUS bonus marks!

The assignment has a Canadian focus.

However, you CAN EDIT the PDF should you wish to change or add content to make it a focus for the country you live in.

I have included the final product requirements as the sample.

There are 10 files here:

1. The Ballad Background
