└ Summer Assignment: What Song Best Describes You?

Your assignment is to write a very short essay (2-3 paragraphs) dealing with a song of your choosing, from whatever musical genre you prefer. The song can either describe you as a person, describe experiences that you went through, and so much more. Let the song that you choose tell me who you are as a person, the person you are becoming or the person you would like to be. The sky is the limit.

In your writing, you may do one or more of the following:

  •      Write an appreciation of how the song works, and perhaps how it fails, too.
  •      Reflect on how the song fits into a wider musical picture in terms of the artist’s career, this genre of music, or pop music itself.
  •     Reflect on how the song intersects with your own life.
  •     Do something else that occurs to you–you have a lot of freedom here.

When you are finished, submit it to me and also make a second copy to save in your portfolio(your classwork tag & also @ me). I do not want this short essay to be a burden or difficult. If you find yourself getting frustrated or stressed. Reach me.. Please have assignment turned in by the first day of school. Thank you. 

If you are unable to complete the assignment or have any questions. Message me.



The road crew is busy putting the west side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road to bed for the winter. Part of the process involves removing the wooden guardrails along the road in locations prone to avalanches. In the background, smoke can be seen drifting into the valley from the Sprague Fire.
