Overview of Students: This assignment is intended for freshmen and sophomores in high school; not honors or accelerated students. The Mix-Tape Lessons could also be used on an older age group, especially if a fun, easy-going review is all you need for poetic devices. However, the 9 th -10 th grade range is probably the most effective age group to administer this assignment to because poetry is a very prevailing tool to a student who is just starting to discover themselves as individuals and as an elemental part of the working world around them. During this time in my own life I was very swayed by the raw power of music with lyrics; music was my cocoon for this metamorphosis into my own set of colorful wings. This assignment is designed so that students are sharing what makes them move, what inspires them.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
