The following is an activity in which students explore various songs which were direct results and/or responses to the conflict in Vietnam. Students are provided with the lyrics to the following four songs:
- "For What It's Worth by Buffalo Springfield
- "Ohio" by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young
- "What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye
- "Ballad of the Green Berets" by Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler
Instructions are for the teacher to play the songs while the students listen to the songs and read the lyrics. (I use You Tube to play the songs and/or play the songs from my personal playlist on my computer)
After each songs are 6-7 discussion/reflection questions to students to answer independently, in pairs, or as a class discussion.
