Up here in wonderful NY state, students take an English state test which requires them to read a poem and also a passage (usually an excerpt from a quick story) and also identify a usual theme between the two. They need to then write a object essay, explaibarisalcity.org exactly how the authors use literary tools to convey that theme. 


To introduce the concepts, I"d prefer to uncover a tune that relates thematically come Julius Caesar (since we simply finished this text). I would then pair that tune with part excerpts from the text. I am searching for songs related to power, fate/free will, greed, honor, principles, pride, etc. that would job-related well through this text.

I would ask the kids to come up through some ideas. Someone in our department just did a project called "Hamlet"s IPod." Students had to come up v songs the relate to Hamlet and submit textual proof to support their choice. A an excellent project because that them, lots of concepts for you!

I would certainly be tempted come collaborate with the Music manager looking for show tunes that express comparable themes. For instance, note Anthony to be to provide his finest friend"s eulogy in former of an angry mob and surrounded by enemies soaked with the blood that his friend. Similar emotions exsist in song from" Rent", "Cabaret,"" male of LaMancha"," Carosel and


In turn the movie "Best small Whorehouse in Texas" has actually a great song "I love to dance a tiny side step" the matches one of two people B Cassias. "Memories" indigenous "CATS" have to work for Brutus. " ns don"t know how to Love him" indigenous "Jesus Christ Superstar" would fit one of two people Calpurnia or Portia. You might also check the end the libretto for "The shade Purple, the Musical"

for female sympathtic songs.

I am not that familar through " UrineTown", however understand there are some great double meabarisalcity.org, pat on indigenous lyrics.

Show tunes might not grab student attention yet lyrics and recordings are easier to find and can accumulate your students to search for comparable song contributions.
