For English Class, I have to write an essay on a topic of my choice.
I already decided that i'm going to write about the origin of blues music, and how blues affected modern music. I then have to do a 2 minute speech about a certain paragraph within the paper.
So... should I do a speech about the blues's origin, Blues in the time of Robert Johnson, or the eventual evolution to modern blues and rock?
I was thinking of making a web/timeline showing the major artists of each timeline, and kind of connecting different artists to show how they influenced new forms of blues (kind of like in school of rock).
And, if you want to recommend a visual aid too (by high school, you've probably done a speech, so you probably know what a visual aid is), that'd be nice.
