Comparing the Sounds of the North and South
Students will listen to Civil War era music composed by nineteenth century composers from the North and from the South. The objective of this lesson will be for students to practice forming sentences which compare ideas using correlative conjunctions, coordinating conjunctions, and/or specialized prepositions (during, while, from, to). Students will describe both pieces of music. The teacher will create a Venn diagram using the students' descriptions. Students will connect ideas using sentence frames provided by the teacher.
