MISSION MONDAY: Dissecting Music

Dissecting Music

Welcome to Mission Monday, a series of posts highlighting the ways North Salem students embrace the district mission of engaging in continual improvement, including questioning, defining and solving problems through critical and creative thinking.

North Salem High School students are engaged in media literacy work with music and music videos. This involves critical thinking where they deconstruct how artists convey their messages through multimedia works. After a full class discussion and analysis of the song “Royals” by the artist Lorde, students then chose their own song to analyze, deconstruct and present to the class.

Listen to the students discuss their analysis in the below video.
