I will Plant You a Lilac Tree


Novel Soundtrack Assignment Learning Target: I can actively listen to a text and take detailed notes. Directions: Fill out the episodic notes sheet during the read aloud of I will Plant You a Lilac Tree, by Laura Hillman. Fill each square with a drawing of a specific scene or event from the novel and write down a description on the lines provided. Try and fill out one section each day to make sure you have plenty of scenes to work with. Learning Target: I can create a soundtrack for a novel based on specific scenes and events. Directions: As you fill out the episodic notes, think of a song that could represent your chosen scene. You need one song for each event on the page for a total of 6 songs. For each song write a paragraph (35 sentences) explaining why this song represents the chosen scene from I Will Plant You a Lil ac tree. Try to convey the feeling of the scene and match it to a song that gives you the same feeling. You do not need to actually make a CD with the music, just a list of the songs and their artists with supporting paragraphs.
Example: Scene: Prologue Song: UNI by Ed Sheeran Explanation: The prologue leaves the reader feeling hopeless and unsure of the future as Hannelore finds herself entering Auschwitz and not Schindlers camp. In the song UNI, a young man finds himself hopeless at the prospect of never getting back together with a girl he loves. He explains, And I don't get waves of missing you anymore, They're more like tsunami tides in my eyes, never getting dry. The feeling of overwhelming sadness reflects both Sheerans song and Hannelores journey, though their situations are so very different.
