Sing, Say, Dance, and Play
in a Culturally Responsive Way

Live workshop on Tuesday February 2, 2021 at 7pm CT

This series focuses on culturally responsive teaching, multiculturalism and social justice education in the general music classroom. Students can collaborate and create together, using protocols defined for culturally responsive classrooms. Through movement, body percussion, songs, chants, and games, Manju models culturally responsive teaching as best practice, especially in virtual, in-person, or hybrid teaching situations.

In addition to the materials, all registrants will be provided access to a recording of the workshop so that you can watch live or as your schedule allows.

I Hear Music in the Air:
Black History Month
Activities, Ideas, and Perspectives

Live workshop on Tuesday January 26, 2021 at 7pm CT

Every year in his classroom Franklin Willis looked forward to producing a Black History Month Program that highlighted music, poetry, art, books, and culture of African Americans. In this session he will share some of those classroom activities and ideas to encourage you to teach the rich cultural heritage of African Americans. Music teachers will leave this session with an enlightened perspective on how to plan, produce, and perform a Black History Month Program.

In addition to the materials, all registrants will be provided access to a recording of the workshop so that you can watch live or as your schedule allows.
