A Journey Through Song/Lyrics across Time

Thursday, June 4 | 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

Music across genres has long reflected the human experience particularly during times of change and challenge. Exploring song lyrics provides an exciting way to engage students in the interdisciplinary study of the Arts, ELA, and Social Studies. In this workshop, we will explore how popular music can provide insight into social and political history of the 20th century and can inform how students hear current events. Through a virtual “hands-on activity” we will introduce you to our methods for organizing online materials for creating song hooks with students that reflect the events we are witnessing today.
