I used this project to get my students to understand what life was like during the Great Depression. Obviously we had to discuss that computers, playlists, and mixtapes didn't exist nor could people afford them, but they seemed to like the irony of it.
They also have to ensure that I can see the narrative arc of the Great Depression through their posts.
They create a playlist or mixtape from the point of view of a person during the Great Depression. They have to include 10 songs with explanations as to why they chose them and lyrical examples.
