Here's an opportunity to really jazz up your teaching by using musical strategies to deliver the curriculum you are already teaching. We will learn how to use songwriting, soundscapes, rhythm compositions and more to enhance and deepen student learning. We will explore many online cultural resources, including videos and materials from the Library of Congress archives. We will also discuss how teaching through the arts makes teaching to the Common Core Standards much more fun and do-able.
SUPPLIES: Students will need to have simple art supplies including drawing paper, crayons and/or colored pencils and/or markers, found objects that make interesting sounds, small percussion or other instruments, IF you already have them.
