__Students today went through a soundtrack compiled for the screen play of Glory Road. Students were then walked through the concept of 'liner notes" and how the concept works with this project.
Student will be tasked with creating a soundtrack of their own to the story. Songs must be tied to a specific scene, be explained as to how the song connects and what evidence (lyrics or lines in the story) connects the two. Page numbers and descriptions of the scene should be included.
The soundtrack will consist of eight songs (eight scenes) that are school appropriate, the page numbers it connects to, a brief description of why they chose the song at a personal level, the mood of the song and the scene, and ultimately an album cover.
Songs from the actual movie may not be used, nor can the album cover or movie poster. Be creative.
