Hi Again! Awesome! the Blues. I have a couple of posts on the blues and jazz in relation to teaching and ELA (also ELL).

I would love to hear about how your thesis is going. Sounds like you are primed for arts integration with the background you have. I'm sure we can learn from one another. (Maybe someday you would like to guest blog on my website???)
FYI - I will be giving a webinar in late July on Music and Literacy through the RSCON.
Let's keep this conversation going. Maybe we can Skype sometime too. Enjoy the rest of your week! :)
