A few months ago, the curriculum called for a lesson on the rise of trade unions in our country as part of the study of the Lower East Side.
From there, I played my class a few songs including There is Power in a Union, Blowin' in the Wind, Fortunate Son, and parts of 911 is a Joke. I gave the class a copy of the lyrics and we discussed what they thought the songs were about.
Then I had each student write their own protest song. I taught them how to use Garage Band and each kid recorded their own song.
I meant to post these back in February, but better late than never, I suppose.
