Here is what I did last year as an end of year activity. I wanted to work on the Vietnam War but through songs. I spent quite some time to find the right songs. I even managed to find a pro-war song. What I wanted my PS to understand was the way American artists rebelled against their elders.
I have reworked those songs in order to provide you with youtube links (when available). I didn´t have the time to indicate what grammar points I studied. Finally, for the French teachers out there, you may want to work on Johnny Halliday´s version of Fortunate Son which is called Fils de Personne and thus do some translation work. I hope you will enjoy this collection of songs as much as I did.

Excellent idea ! I study the Vietnam war with my Terminales, so I found your work really interesting; I LOVE Springsteen´s speech, but I had heard it as an introduction to "The River" on another video.Thanks again !
Went through this work again ! Fantastic ! Have it of course. I am a Joan Baez fan. Where are you now my son ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgDm85StSQs Thanks for your nice comments BTW.
