SMART: Shaping Music and Reading Together

I am thrilled to share a new program at Baldwin Wallace University that infuses Orff concepts in its effort to combine music and literacy concepts. The primary goal of this program is to increase students’ reading fluency. Our 2013 program just finished last week. Stay tuned for more details about our program!

A summary of the mission of the program can be found at: http://www.bw.edu/news/smartprogram/.
