Students can write/perform their own work songs or rap songs. They should be able to explain their purpose for writing the song.
Students who play musical instruments can perform selections for the class. The school music director would be a good source for easy arrangements of spirituals and jazz compositions.
Students can create artwork in response to the musical selections. The artwork does not have to be a literal interpretation of the piece but can be an emotional response. That may mean abstract designs using colors and shapes that fit the mood of the piece.
The instructional activities are appropriate for 9th grade because students have had the opportunity to acquire prior knowledge of American history and Black history. The time periods and events referenced by the musical selections will be familiar to them. Further ...
Different learners may need lyrics in written form; they may not be able to process ideas sufficiently if they hear the words only. Some students may need to hear recordings multiple time before understanding. Students can wear earphones or other type of individual device for listening.
The lesson demonstrates constructivist views by providing activities in which students can participate. There is very little lecture associated with this lesson. Students listen to musical selections and discuss with their teachers and peers. The teacher uses leading, open-ended questions to elicit student responses. The musical genres are clearly defined, but much of what students are asked is open to interpretation. There are no right or wrong answers when they explain how a piece of music makes them feel. Although there are both correct and incorrect responses possible when discussing historical references, there is latitude for students to make choices about the events they choose to discuss and the details they choose to provide. The flexibility of the assignments and the variety of musical styles ensure that students will find something to their liking.
