How our Class Bundles Work
Bundles are collections of classes. Class bundles are designed to deepen learning on a variety of topics. At Reconstruction there are two types of bundles for you to experience.
1.Bundles of classes that can be taken in a specific order to build learning from one class to another
2.Bundles of classes that can be taken in any order you choose. Take one class after another based on your interests to deepen learning
What’s Being Taught in this class bundle?
Learn about the past, present, and future of Black music. Students will hear songs from multiple genres - blues, hip-hop, bluegrass, jazz, and rock - and find out about the legendary Black musicians who are responsible for bringing each genre to life. This class is based on Black Music Is, a book by Marcus Amaker - Charleston, SC's first Poet Laureate. Students will have a chance to respond to the music, and hear songs from current musicians who are keeping history alive.
