Write listening journal about Capoeira(The Afro-Brazilian Dance-Fight-Game)
Make a point, e.g.:
o Offer an original musical, social, or cultural analysis based on the evidence offered in
class and/or in the listening examples themselves. You may be speculative here—that is,
you don’t have to rigorously prove your point: this is a journal entry, not a full paper. o Or, ask a thought-provoking question that responds to what you learned about the
listening example from class. Explain why you are asking this question.
o Or, compare two or more listening examples, optionally comparing the examples you are
discussing to examples from other weeks.
o Or, write in an interesting, creative, and original way about your response to the music:
what feelings it evokes in you, and why you think you might be responding that way.
Be original. Entries that only repeat or paraphrase what the instructor or another student said will
receive no better than half credit, and may receive no credit.
No bibliography is necessary unless you are citing something from a published source or
no more than one page.
Must describe one music term from tempo, context, instrument, harmony.
