This class will give students opportunities to experience literature through creative poetry and songwriting. Through structured and engaging activities, students will explore literary devices and terms, parts of speech, grammar, and reading comprehension while expressing ideas through songwriting and poetry. The culminating course project will be a collection of original songs that the class will create and will be recorded onto a CD with art designed by each student. Music knowledge is not required for this course. Activities will be presented such as reading, playing, and analyzing famous songs and poems, writing rhymes and songs on the board. Also, we’ll discuss Music theory and how to create melodies.
