Back to School: Rewriting The Beatles’ “Help!”
Students will sum up their breaks using a one-syllable word and then rewrite the song Help! based on that word.
Here's a live performance of The Beatles playing Help!
- First, students will come up with a one-syllable word (like "help") to sum up their experiences away from school. They'll rewrite the intro to Help! using this word.
- Next, each student will write about their own experiences around the one-syllable word and rewrite a verse of Help!
- Then, groups will rewrite the chorus of Help! to be about their experiences.
- Finally, students can create artwork, do a photoshoot, film a music video, or even learn semaphore!
