Jazz is a uniquely American art form. This popular style of music sprang from post-slavery African-American culture, as children of slaves settled in big cities. They began to fuse their musical heritage with the influences of their new surroundings, and the result is still felt in the music we know as jazz today. Students will learn about the different forms of music that fuzed together to create the jazz sound, as well as many of the past and present jazz greats. This title will allow students to ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
