Students need the in depth analysis tool to help them to focus on more than just the concrete facts but requires they dig deeper and that they speculate about what life would have been like. *After the students complete the worksheet individually they will break into small groups and use a Venn diagram to come up with common descriptive words that could be used in a Rap. *The final project will be the group performance of the 4 measure 16 beat rap. *Critical thinking skills will be used to find the key descriptive words that will be used in the rap. Not only do they need to describe what life would be like but also use a specific rhythm pattern and rhyming words so that the rap flows and follows the correct form. *This lesson integrates into the music curriculum by having students create, notate and perform their own music.

In keeping with Ridgway being established in the late 1800s, students will become aware of a unique American art form that developed at the same time, Ragtime. Students will recognize and identify Ragtime music with its use of syncopation and improvisation as a uniquely American art form. Before listening to examples of Ragtime music, students will study the picture and poster using the SEA chart. This will give students the opportunity to use the picture and poster to predict what the music might sound like. Students will then be told some of the intrinsic qualities of Ragtime (syncopation, improvisation, etc). Students will then experience the listening examples of a classic rag on the LOC web site http://lcweb2.loc.gov/diglib/ihas/loc.natlib.ihas.200035813/default.html. http://lcweb2.loc.gov/diglib/ihas/loc.natlib.ihas.200035813/default.html Last, the students will study Scott Joplin and his contributions to Ragtime music. Students will use the KWL chart along with a Bibliography of Scott Joplin to finish off this lesson on American music of the late 1800s. Critical thinking is promoted with the use of the picture and the poster. Students have to look at these and analyze them to decide what something may sound like. This could really stir up some discussions especially since the class will have already been taught the song Five Cent Shave from the previous Modules and a lesson on jug bands from the book. This lesson is integrated with the rest of the music curriculum through the study of form, rhythm, and style.
