Reflection on ONE: Text to text, text to self, text to world connection with the book
This onomatopaeia in this book reminds me of Rap a Tap Tap: Here's Bojangles-Think of That by Leo Dillon. Instead of making noise with percussion like Tito Puente, Bojangles makes similar sounds with his feet.
Write six discussion questions using all six stages of Bloom’s Taxonomy
1. Knowledge: What kind of instrument does Tito Puente play?
2. Comprehension: Why did they call Tito Puente, "The Mambo King"
3. Application: The author used onomatopoeia to describe the sounds of the percussion, can you create onomatopoeia for one of the following instruments: Violin, Tuba, Flute?
4. Analysis: What events in Tito Puente's life most greatly influenced his musical development? Why?
5. Synthesis: How might Tito's Puente's music be different if it were composed today?
6. Evaluation: Listen to the TIto Puente piece "Oye como va". Write a music review citing instrumentation, lyrics, musical style, and other musical elements (melody, harmony, timbre, texture, and form). In addition to an evaluation of the music components, write a justification as to why you like or don't like the piece.
