Make your curriculum sing by integrating music into your classroom. Many teachers and parents mourn the fact that the arts are disappearing from schools’ curricula, but the reality is that music still has a place in every classroom—including yours! Music stimulates your students’ capacity for attention, memory, and motivation (among other things), and with the right tools, you can harness these benefits to promote your students’ learning.
In this course, you will discover the many ways that you can incorporate music into your curriculum, regardless of what subject you teach. You will explore a myriad of ideas, lesson plans, and resources that will enhance your teaching through the use of music. In addition, you’ll cultivate techniques for connecting music to language arts, history, and STEM subjects, and see how music can encourage your students’ cultural awareness and social–emotional learning.
By the end of this course, you will have a toolkit of strategies that will light up your students’
brains, spark their interest, and create an environment of empathy, passion, and connectedness
in your classroom.
