The American Yawp Textbook( can find the audio book on YouTube under “Brandon Pink” page)

Read the designated textbook YAWP chapters 1,2,3,4 These are the sources you MUST use for your paper. Outside sources are accepted.
For each chapter covered, students will choose one song, from any time period and any musical genre they so desire, that they can argue resembles what they learned in that chapter. All songs must have a link to YouTube to listen to the song. If possible, songs can be embedded into the paper itself for even easier listening. (ORIGINAL SONG)
Describe the chapter in detail, especially defining its major themes, ideas, persons, and/or events. (1-2) paragraphs.
Students will then describe the song they chose to represent that chapter and give reasons why it is a good choice by using evidence from the course sources.
In order to justify why that particular song is a good song, students will provide evidence from the three (3) source types listed above: the textbook chapter, the primary sources, AND the lecture (or other videos). All three. Each song choice/chapter needs at least 3 examples (1 from all 3 source types). This is mandatory.
All quotes must be explained. If you use a quote from one of the source types, you need to explain in your own words why this is a good quote and how it justifies your argument of song choice. Do not leave hanging quotes.
All papers must cite all sources using Chicago Style Citations.
Technical Requirements:
Times New Roman Font, 12″ text, 1″ margins
Each Chapter Tune will be approximately 1 page in length. The total should be about 4 pages, plus a bibliography.
Proof-read for clarity, spelling, and grammar

Each assignment will consist of the following:
one song for each chapter covered that describes and defines major concepts, ideas, peoples, and/or events
a link to the song from youtube.com or another acceptable website
an explanation as to how the song relates to the course material. For example, the lyrics or the music video, or the topic of the song.
An explanation of the topic and why you chose that song specifically using examples from the 3 required sources
Examples for each song from the textbook, lectures/videos, AND a primary source
all assignments must have the following:
a link to the song online, preferably youtube.com
Zero plagiarism or any copy-pasting from the Internet in any fashion
must use the textbook,/documentaries/crash course videos, AND a primary source. all three or it’s zero.
While you might love your songs, not everyone will, and that’s ok. I do ask that all students use songs that have been censored (no swearing or objectionable language). The cleaner version of songs – the bleeped-out version. I’ll put it two ways. It should be the version that can be played on the radio. And if your grandparent was listening to the radio, they wouldn’t be upset
