In a world full of reluctant readers, how can we increase literacy and engage our students? Music is a universal language that all humans speak. It can express emotions, tell stories, build a sense of community, foster creativity, and teach academic vocabulary. Research proves that music increases cognitive activity and enhances learning. So why not use it in the classroom? Music can become a crucial part of your curriculum to teach concepts from Informational, Literary, and Writing Standards, as well as history. When you download this presentation YOU WILL HAVE A NEW PLAYLIST that your students will love to LEARN from WHILE ROCKING OUT!
Disclaimer: This is a presentation I gave at my county's tech fair. You will see some purple slides that are a portion of my lesson on Theme. It is not the entire lesson and it does not have all of the materials needed. That will be a separate product. Also, I do not use music as a rigorous assessment, but rather as a introduction to a concept or unit.
