Learning Adjectives through the Duke

Duke Ellington, jazz, and jive kick-off a fun and creative lesson on responding emotionally to music. The class will learn about jive talk used in the 1920s and the life and music of Duke Ellington. They'll listen to a selection of his music, review phrases from a jive dictionary and then compose jive poems that express how they feel when they listen to jazz. The lesson sounds like a lot of fun, and would be perfect for a unit on American composers.
