As an assessment/evaluation of the unit, students can use any expressive form they feel (poem, essay, song, dance, etc.) to illustrate what they learned from the six week unit. Because improvisation is a large part of the Blues culture, the students could be asked to produce this expressive piece within a limited time period (i.e. 25-30 minutes).
Writing this unit has been an immense learning experience for me. I have chosen one way in which to present the Blues culture to students. However, while using this unit, you may be inclined to include different activities. I encourage this diversity in ideas and hope that, through this, students will develop a heightened awareness and appreciation for life and will, consequently, become more diligent in their efforts to build good character.
