The Poetry of Song: Songwriter Biographies
You have been assigned the name of a notable songwriter. On your blog, you must now complete a biographical presentation of your given artist(s) including, but not limited to, the following: a list of 10 relevant, interesting facts regarding the artist(s), a timeline, 5 high quality images, a link to relevant video footage, a formal analysis of one song which exemplifies the artist's use of poetic devices, and a short essay examining the artist's contributions to the practice of song-writing. I will check and assess your final products on Tuesday, September 16th. You will share your work with the class this same week. Check the syllabus for exact dates.
