These young men were listening. They listened a lot. Dr. Rardin knew how to keep their attention. Let’s discuss…

“Mixing things up is something we know is scientifically supported as something that boosts attention,” Daniel Willingham psychologist at the University of Virginia says, adding that studies show that when students pay closer attention, they learn better.   NPR

So.  We keep it interesting for us and for our students.  Never teach a piece of music you do not like!  Why would you do that?  Way too much to choose from as it it.

HEARING IS NOT THE SAME THING AS LISTENING!

You will develop a listening lesson or series of activities that would go well with your book.  You can include puppets, shadow art, movement, listening maps, etc.
