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.
