Personal Playlists: Ten Favorite Songs
|Grades||9 – 12|
|Activity Time||3 or more hours (can be completed over several days)|
Work with a teen to create a wiki with everything people should know about the teen's top ten favorite songs-and your favorite songs as well! Then invite friends to add their favorite songs too.
Learning how to use an exciting new technology, wikis, while researching their favorite songs and musicians, teens can gain a better understanding of the meaning of the songs they love and why they are relevant, important texts in their lives.
This activity was modified from the ReadWriteThink lesson plan "A Collaboration of Sites and Sounds: Using Wikis to Catalog Protest Songs."
