• Blues Song
• Cover Music Comparison
• Music Styles
• African Influence
In our unit, students trace the development of Rock n' Roll, from African Tribal music through to the modern music styles of today.
Due to the academic nature of the material, our unit can be taught with a great deal of structure, much like a social studies history unit. A variety of student assignments are incorporated in the lesson. Students write words for their own blues song, create a poster for a specific music style, and write and illustrate a newspaper. This Music lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, activities, crossword, word search and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
