AS Unit 2 Revision and Research

Special focus style research

Students to work in pairs to compile club dance google docs including links to youtube for relevant audio/video content. These must then be shared with me so I can share them with the rest of the class.

Use the research documents on the blog to give you an idea of what everyone needs to know about each artist. Try to include a picture or graphic of some kind. When making reference to particular releases give the year of release. Try to research beyond the given artist by making reference to other acts in the same style who were around at the same time, who influenced by the artist you’re researching or were influenced by them.
