What would a soundtrack of your life sound like? At Walton Middle School, Mrs. Kent’s sixth grade reading students were tasked with answering this question. Using music and lyrics, students explored the process of constructing personal narratives. After listening to some “old school” classics on a record player, students delved into analyzing their lives, researching songs appropriate to each life event, constructing a soundtrack, and presenting their work to their Warrior Tribe!
