Oh, yes I did! I put together a Severus Snape Mini Mixtape called The Prince’s Tape! My latest podcast episode is all about it! The mixtape is dope and I can’t wait for everyone to listen to it!

[NHIE] Teachers Pt. 2: Mr. Shapiro & Mr. Kulkarni – Brown Teacher Reads
Here’s all the details for The Prince’s Tape. This link will take you to the Google Doc that includes all of the justifications I wrote for the title/song order and song choices. This document is created with the template for the Shastri-Persson Family Portrait Mini MIxtape group project that I created. Let me know your thoughts on my mixtape–DID I DO A GOOD JOB?!
Now that’ you’ve immersed yourself in the details of The Prince’s Tape, I wanted to share why I made it in the first place. As you may recall, I was reading Dava Shastri’s Last Day earlier in the year and I designed a curriculum for use in high school English classrooms! The Severus Snape Mini Mixtape is a sample of a group project I designed to go along with that book! I always believe in creating samples of finished projects for my students, so I decided to use a neutral, ubiquitous reference: Harry Potter, of course!
Teachers interested in checking out all the details of the project, please find everything you need in this Google Drive folder to assign a group mixtape project for Dava Shastri’s Last Day or really any book you’re reading with your students!
Email me your Severus Snape, or any other Harry Potter-related mixtape! Let’s put these mixtapes in conversation with each other. I’d also love to hear from teachers planning on using this project next year (or to close out the school year: one song per novel you read this year!!) My email: email@example.com
Last bit mot least, here is my first HP Voicemail on Instagram, in case you’d like to watch it! And share it! I hope to creating one of these a month 🙂
