Unit 6 - Music and Rock and Roll

In this unit, students will read about various artists and different musical styles, but especially rock and roll. Students will explore a wide range of cultural products. They will have to make connections between the texts to broaden their knowledge of music. Throughout the unit, students will use reading strategies about text components that help them construct the meaning of texts.
