Thank you to all who attended my session today on Teaching Writing Through Music and Imagery! Attached for you (as promised) is the lesson and information that I’ve used in my classroom for teaching reading and writing about music and using music to support cross curricular collaboration. I did not remember to give you my works cited (in creating the power point) however, I will post them here (always give credit where credit is due!).
