Country Joe McDonald kicks off this first lesson with his iconic performance at Woodstock. Students identify the concept of an awareness event, and then look for ethos in Joe McDonald's performance, their teacher and themselves.
In this introductory lesson to a 4-part series, students demonstrate they understand the concept of ethos through the frame of an issue awareness event (concert).
This lesson is step one towards the final project: a multimedia presentation (pitch) outlining their benefit concert plan. Lesson one focuses on ethos in a historical musical performance.
