Tonight while attending the Nationals game with the #doingdh16 crew, we discussed sounds. The conversation moved from scholarly to popular culture and the question arose: what is your theme song? I went with a classic. Feel the grove and join in by dancing. While I tend to ramble, I do eventually get around to my point which is actually another question: how does sound influence us and our classrooms?
My guess is that we all incorporate sound in diverse and complex ways. I would like to start to intentionally add this element into my classes. I have two assignments in my mind that I will revise utilizing the tools that we learned today: Ballads – Narrative and Themes and as a option for the service learning project. Since it is late, I am signing off, but am happy to share them in person.
