Students will select two contrasting poems (contrasting mood, contrasting form/style, contrasting time period, etc.) and compose a brief (two- to three-minute) musical composition that reflects each. This could be a vocal piece that sets the poetry’s words to music or an instrumental composition that seeks to depict or represent the poems’ meanings. Students will also submit a brief written reflection (one to two pages) that explains the thinking behind their compositions.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
