STUDY GUIDE

GREAT LITERATURE LESSONS

Novels are important because they help readers explore and understand the time and lives of the characters and authors. They also offer an escape that builds a powerful imagination. In class, great literature allows room for discussion between students to understand and explain the different themes, conflicts, and resolutions. At Mind Muzic, we help teachers and parents integrate their lesson plans into several remarkable books with memorable lyrics and melodies that illustrate the character, plot, setting, and moral lessons inside each story.

Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Historical Music Exploration

History is complex, vast and interesting. When authors write about their own personal lives, it allows young readers deep insight into the past.  Therefore, studying history is the perfect approach to help your students understand the present while simultaneously preparing them for their future. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn paints a picture of endurance during trying economic times for many Americans, while epic poems like The Iliad detail ancient Greek mythology through the treacherous Greek War. Our vivid, story-telling lyrics are quickly comprehended through these classics that your class will appreciate and enjoy from an entirely new approach. 

Music to Explore Different Themes

There are several themes to explore in each novel including discrimination, economic freedom, romance, governance, and free will.  Integrating Mind Muzic lessons provides students a unique opportunity to further explore forbidden romance in Romeo and Juliet and the devastating cause and effect of sin and guilt in The Scarlet Letter. Soon after, your class will then travel back to World War II to discover human beings’ ability to persevere through hard times as detailed in The Diary of Anne Frank.
