This class is geared towards high school students grades 9-12. We discuss variety of topics in popular music of the 20th century with an emphasis on social justice. Spring 2017 was the first semester this class was offered and the curriculum is still in development. However, after many inquiries, I am making this curriculum public. There are many things that I will be changing this coming year to reflect the needs and desires of the students that will be in the class.
Some of these topics and projects can be adjusted for younger learners. I realized at the beginning of the semester that I assigned far too much outside of class reading and quickly adjusted to group readings. There are many readings in the folders, so pick and choose what you would like to choose.
If you choose to use anything in this curriculum, please download onto your own device. Additionally, I would appreciate a quick email letting me know that you are using, or are considering using, some of these materials as I have spent many hours putting things together.
I will be updating the curriculum throughout the year, so check back periodically for new items. If you have any questions about the nature of lessons or something needs clarifying, please let me know! Thanks for looking. Sharing is caring! Link to Google Drive for curriculum
