PROJECT #2 IDEAS
STEP 1 conduct enough research to understand your art form and artists and to present them in a clear and compelling manner.
STEP 2 identify a key primary source (or sources) related to your area of research: song lyrics, poem, artwork, audio or video performance. You will share the primary source with your classmates during the presentation in order to help them understand the relationship between the artists and the era.
