Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge We Sing in One Voice for All Beliefs - Section 4: Closing the Loop



To make the connection to Common Core media and writing expectations in a fun way - I have had my students continue this lesson with the addition of writing their own songs, ballads or poetry after the song comparison lesson is completed. We even did a power point of rhyming words and pictures one year and put them all to music. The goal should be to take connections from prior history lessons and books that they read to create a song that speaks about events that happened in our countries past or present history. Wish I had saved some examples to show you but if you search youtube there are plenty of student singers you could use as an example to get them started.
