In Media Arts the grade 5 students have been developing an awareness of ‘Copyright’ and how it effects them. They are discovering what it means, when it applies and how they can safely use material they access on-line. To send a message about Piracy and Copyright, students wrote a rap. Once they created lyrics, they recorded it in the iPad App Garage Band, then added beats and sound effects.
Take a listen to some of the student’s creations….
Students Please Reflect On The following Questions……
1. What was challenging about creating lyrics for a rap?
2. How did this task help you engage with the topic Copyright?
3. What are some characteristics of a rap you used to make it catchy?
4. Why is a rap a good way to send a message?
