Poets Got Them Blues

Contemplate what music learners listen to and why they listen. Can they find poetry within music lyrics? Specifically hone in on blues lyrics and ruminate upon the social issues prevalent in the themes. Particular song lyrics coincide with poets like Langston Hughes and his writing "Weary Blues." Scholars then compose a poem themselves. Tie these activities into a social studies, art, or English class for cross-curricular emphasis.
