Using Music and Image to Raise Spiritual and Moral Questions in the Foreign Language Classroom: Exploring the Sohne Mannheims
Smith, David I.; DeVries, Herman J., Jr.; Roberts, F. Corey
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v15 n2 p153-166 Fall 2011
Music offers to language teachers benefits in terms of language exposure, cultural information, and multisensory appeal. This article describes how the use of music videos offers potential for exploring spiritual and moral concerns, especially as the intersections between words, sounds, and images are explored. Exploring how (in this case) specifically German voices address faith-related questions with specific reference to their own cultural context may at the same time deepen moral, spiritual, and cultural learning. The examples described are drawn from the music videos release by the German band Sohne Mannheims. (Contains 6 notes.)
