Remember to follow all instructions! If you know you are going to miss something, the make up work is due the day of the event. If you miss due to an emergency, we will discuss the due date.
Ms. Crye is gone wheeeee - Due Next Week (you have two days to complete it) Work by yourself or in groups of 2. Grab a poster from next to the cabinet by Solomon's locker. Art supplies are in the blue boxbinthing by the piano. Make sure name(s) are on the back of the poster. Be prepared to present next time I see you - I will choose randomly. Text me via Remind if you have questions.
Pick 5 songs (6 if working with a partner). You choose why you've picked them - you love them, you hate them, you are dedicating them to your bestie, you think Nickleback isn't that bad and want to show why, etc. - list the songs on your board and provide an illustration for each. Put your "theme" (why you chose the songs) at the top and for each song describe why you chose it and how it fits your theme.
Ex."Songs I Hate" "Hearts Burst into Fire" by Bullet for My Valentine. The song itself is super great, but at the very end of the track they decided to include guitar feedback and the particular pitch gives me a headache, thus ruining the whole thing for me. [insert flaming heart drawing here]
Don't just say "I don't like it." Give a reason. Practice those neat-o writing skills teachers have been trying to make you use since you were 5.
Make your poster look nice, I want some new stuff to display on the class walls. You've got 2 days to Do The Thing, so it should look like a nice, put together project. We'll vote on the nicest one (per class) and the winners get a $10 gift card of their choice.
