Unit:  Looking In the Music Mirror:  How music reflects society. (3rd Nine Weeks)

This 8 week unit will conclude with each student presenting a PPT on a song which reflects equal/human rights issues.  It will include general research of songs which reflect rights issues, choosing their song, indepth research on that song/composer/performer, construction of the PPT, and the final presentation.
