Music of the Vietnam War Era This has been, and is, a highly successful unit for me in involving students in the study of the war. Listening to music does not seem like school work! I think it can be a significant research experience.
I include some important reference material for the teacher and some of the basic material for teaching the lesson. The teacher will need to get the recordings of the songs to play for the students. The lyrics will help them understand what is being said and sung. The questions and the worksheet will hopefully help them develop an analysis of the music. Encourage students to bring in their own songs from the period with the lyrics.
