Product Description
For this project, students will be choosing a musical group or artist from the 1970's and discovering how they fit into American culture of that period. Students will be researching some basic background about the artists and also choosing one of their songs to analyze.
Students' research will culminate in a brief (5 minute) presentation to the class containing the following information:
1. Basic background- Where/when born/formed? Significant achievements, Where/how why broke up/retired/died?, etc.
2. Musical genre
3. Level of popularity- # albums sold, $ made, concerts, etc.
4. Musical influences
5. Place in the 1970's- How could artist/group be seen as representative of an aspect of 1970's American culture.
6. Legacy/Impact
7. One song and analysis- This may be a CD or tape version of the song to which the class will listen and the lyrics to the song which students will analyze for the class (these can be found on the internet at various sites). Then students will briefly discuss the song's meaning, how it fit into the 1970's, and any other information which they can find out about it.
