This small group project involves 8 different groups getting a song to analyze. They have to answer questions in 5 different categories and then make a short presentation to the class where they discuss the context, symbolism, musicality, historical interpretation, and more. I do not have a grading rubric or answer key for this assignment in the packet, I simply have on the assignment a sentence stating that it is out of 30 points, 5 for each of the 5 categories and an additional 5 points for the presentation. Since this is a document, you can change it to meet your grading needs.
