How can we keep them singing? Older students in the music classroom need different motivation than the younger grades. Music educators aim to build the musical skills of students by exposing them to many different songs. Join us virtually as we explore engaging songs, games, and activities specifically for older students. We will also discuss scaffolding student learning and how to design a step-by-step process to ensure that students are able to learn the material and sharpen their musical understandings.
If you can attend on the day, you will receive a Zoom invitation with the meeting link and password prior to the webinar.
