Hello. I hope you are enjoying yourself at ISTE! I've been keeping up with some of it through twitter and it sounds incredible. I would love to go one year.
I finished my unit on the blues and I just thought I would share it with you. It is my first music integrated unit and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Here is the link in google docs. Roots & Blues and here is the link for the glogster I made for my presentation. I still have a pretty decent learning curve with this site but it lists my essential and guidign questions with some multi-media information. Roots & Blues glogster
Thanks! I think as an artist, sharing our creative process is so important to keeping inspired, and I see that reflected in teaching as well. To me they just fit together so well. I am looking forward to learning and sharing with you, and it would be an honor to collaborate with you someday on your blog!
I am writing a unit for one of my courses right now on The Blues, folklore and song as cultural heritage of African Americans. I would love to get your thoughts on it if you are interested. I have very limited knowledge of music, but I love it and feel it has so much to offer in the classroom.
oh and Yes I am on twitter, my ID is http://aschordine
I hope you are having a wonderful day, and I look forward to continuing our conversation.
Thank you! I am student teaching at Hampton Bays Elementary on the east end of LI this coming Fall. I will be in second and fourth grade. I am very excited about it and looking forward to the challenge! I am in the graduate program at Long Island University at Riverhead, I am a career changer, I received my BA in theatre design and have worked as a professional artist. I am super passionate about arts integrated curriculum, especially as it pertains to 21st Century Learning, in fact I am writing my thesis on it.
I just took a webinar offered through ASCD with Lisa Dabbs and she mentioned building a PLN, so I am learning about all of these amazing networks available to educators. I really enjoyed your blog, and if I was a bit closer I would love to take part in your class. Anyway, thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me. I look forward to getting to know you!

I've been intrigued by the language of "catch up" which has come from government ministers and even the Children's Commissioner. The idea that lockdown has resulted in lost learning and a widening of the gap can't be disputed but it is the solutions put forward by government which has revealed the reductive nature of the government's attitude to learning and to young people. To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
