Engaged Music Learning through Children's Literature
Eppink, Joseph A.
General Music Today, v22 n2 p19-23 2009
Children's literature is a wonderful addition to the general music classroom. Stories and poems can be key strategic tools for teaching musical concepts and skills while leading students to further experience writing, vocabulary, and literature. Children's literature and music provide an opportunity to increase the love of music and reading within students. This article considers the three phases that music educators experience as they prepare lessons to enhance and engage music learning with children's literature. Examples, strategies, and a sample lesson plan are included in this article. (Contains 2 figures.)
