Storyboard Text

  • Is the message to be happy with who you are?
  • What about Michael Jackson's song, "The Man in the Mirror"?  Is there a message there?
  • I think it is about looking at yourself to make the change you want to see
  • I like the way you all are thinking.  Let's move forward & think about a song that has to do with an environmental topic
  • Upon listening to the song, "Big Yellow Taxi", the students identified the message of the song.   The message was to protect the environment, specifically nature being destroyed for building projects.  
  • The students also reflected on the emotional connection of the song and how it made them feel.
  • "Big Yellow Taxi"
  • This is great!  I can tell you all did your homework and paid attention to the message.
  • Let's take it further.  Research the song lyrics, author, and era. Is this song referring to a specific event?
  • Upon research, the students found out the song was first recorded in 1970 by Joni Mitchell.  The song was talking about a project that tore down a "paradise-like" plot of land to build a parking lot, hotel, boutique and a night club. 
  • Now let's take what we have learned & apply it.  Your assignment is to choose an environmental topic important to you and write a song about it.  This will be exciting and we will all share our songs with our class!
