WORDS & MUSIC: SONGWRITER BIOS
These songwriter biographies offer more in-depth information about writers featured in the Words & Music lessons. They also introduce students to some important songwriters not mentioned in the lessons, who are, nevertheless, recognized as important contributors to the craft. The biographies are written to grade level specifications for both 3 to 6 grades and 7 to 12 grades. These biographies correspond directly to the Songwriter Extension for 3-6 | Songwriter Extension for 7-12 Lessons but can be used for other assignments in Words & Music or for project-based learning work outside this unit.
Each biography offers suggested listening for the songwriter. The biographies for grades 7 to 12 include sources for additional reading.
