Title: Music from Across America
Description: In this unit of five lessons, from EDSITEment, students listen to a variety of popular, traditional and ethnic American music--from the evocative sounds of Native American drumming to the lively sounds of zydeco music from Louisiana. To develop their listening skills, students use worksheets to record their impressions about the music they hear. In addition to learning about musical instruments and the geographic and cultural context of music, students are encouraged to think about and express their personal responses to music.
