One of my favorite lessons is coming up next week. I love using music in the classroom. The vast majority of my students are major fans of this genre. When I can, I like to incorporate the strong interest my students have for music into my lessons.
I went to a workshop last year on using music in the classroom and decided I wanted to use music to reinforce the material I was teaching. I was surprised by how many songs reference job skills in some way (strong work ethic, staying in school, supporting a family, being responsible, paying bills, etc.). While listening to my students talk about favorite songs, I found one that incorporates many of the skills we talk about regularly.
