One of my high school English teachers needed an idea for a unit. I worked up A Life in Music. It allows students to focus on their life events that have shaped them to this point and then select a song that represents that moment. When they are finished, they write a poem/story using the titles of the songs.
The lesson outline:
- Create a Prezi. You should have slides for each of the following (you may need to make multiple slides or include all on one):
- Your life events and short descriptions.
- A YouTube video of the song.
- Your final slide should include the poem or story you have written.
If you have any questions or need more information, leave a comment.
