Playlist for English IV: BROOKLYN EDITION

My teaching assignment at my high school in Brownsville BK has been made official: English IV for high school seniors. Herein lie the texts we will study, and I love integrating music into my lessons and projects so that the students (who tend to love and think a lot about music) will feel more engaged and as if they can draw abstract connections between the content and the stuff they’re already interested in, yoking the two categories a bit closer to each other, which I think is inherently salutary. The texts:
1Miles Davis
Birth of the Cool

Ralph Ellison - Invisible Man
2Roxanne Shante
Bad Sister

Henrik Ibsen - A Doll’s House
3Ravi Shankar
Music Of India

Arundhati Roy - The God of Small Things (the only text with which I’m unfamiliar)
4Lil Wayne
Dedication 2

“Famous political speeches” (Obama, FDR, Sojourner Truth)
5The Caretaker
An Empty Bliss Beyond This World

F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby (yes this is late in the high school game to read TGG but I’m stoked)
