You know how you can easily remember all of the words to your favorite song from ten years ago? Well, it’s because music helps you learn. Changing the words from a song you like to words that help you remember history is a great way to study, and it’s fun! Or if you’re musically inclined, you can write an entirely new song. The history is what’s important here.
You can write a song focusing on a specific topic (like imperialism or WWII), or your song can span wide swaths of history. Just have fun with it! If you write a really good song, send it my way (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know what real song it’s to the tune of. I may even post it for the world to see 🙂
