Weekly Tribes 2012 – 2013 Musical Influence
Influence is in the air…so why not challenge your students with a little musical intelligence…
What is ‘stirring’? Once you identify it, challenge students to come up with a musical example that demonstrates…song, lyrics, mood, etc.
For example, what if students are using put-downs once they are out of class (in halls, on playground, etc.)?
Possible musical examples to encourage no put downs are: R.E.M ‘Everybody Hurts’, Todd Rundgren ‘Be Nice to Me’. Bruce Springsteen ‘Let’s Be Friends’
Perhaps some pro-social, anti aggression songs or lyrics might be worth a little attention…maybe even incorporate some grammar and punctuation awareness?
Put a little more music in your world.
