In class, we have been discussing our favourite songs. We shared lyrics we adore and we debated and commented on them.
We also read an article about Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize for Literature! WOW!!!
Now, we are going to work on musicians and bands that sometimes write to protest!
Musicians of all genres have voiced their support for causes such as civil rights and an end to war. With the recent surge of activism in New York and beyond, new activists can hum these numbers as they fight for immigrant rights or demonstrate to protect the environment.
I have prepared a list of 21 protest songs, one for each of you.
Choose a song you want to work on: https://doodle.com/poll/wi56iresasbchmqi
Prepare a post in your blog (Language and Literature) and analyse the song. Include:
-a short biography of the singer or band
-a video of the band or singer playing the song
-main themes (quote to prove) and tones
-at least 3 literary devices you can spot
-your opinion on the topic
-any pic you want to use to illustrate the matter
Also, make a reflection on this learning activity (did you like it? was it useful? what did you learn?, etc)
Then, visit 5 blogs and leave a comment.
