Students are currently learning about the pop culture of the 1950’s, and last Friday’s class was devoted to the life and music of Elvis Presley.  For homework, students are required to research Elvis Presley so they can complete the graphic organizer they started in class last Friday.  In addition, on the backside of their graphic organizer, students should pick their favorite Elvis Presley song, write down its release date, and its lyrics.  In a well-written paragraph (at least 5 sentences) they need to explain the overall meaning of the song.  This assignment is due this Friday, January 26th.
