Learning through The Duke

Students examine the important contributions made by Duke Ellington to the field of jazz, as well as some of the factors that led to his involvement in the field. As they explore the language of the 1920's, connections will be drawn between popular expressions and the sounds created in jazz. Students craft an original poem using these words and expressions and have the opportunity to respond to a piece of Duke Ellington's music through movement and art.
