The units in this collection offer a unique way to introduce the study of popular performers and, through them, music genres into your classroom. Each unit includes a short biography of the performer, along with his or her discography, a list of other performers in the same genre, and a brief statement about that genre; all of which may be reproduced for your students. There's plenty of great information on the surface, but to help further engage and involve students, secret information has been embedded within the articles. Different codes are used for each article, and the codes vary in difficulty. Keys for the codes and answers to the questions are provided, and permission to reproduce the student pages is granted.
The performers profiled: Luciano Pavarotti · B.B. King · Julie Andrews · Bill Monroe · Queen Latifah · Yo-Yo Ma · Johnny Cash · Mahalia Jackson · The Beatles · Louis Armstrong · Carlos Santana.
