¿Cómo usas la música para desarrollar el lenguaje y la cultura en su salón de clase? ¿Has pensado en investigar la historia de un instrumento musical, la historia de un/una artista famoso/a o los diferentes estilos de música en Latinoamérica?
How do you use music to develop language and culture in your classroom? Have you given thought to exploring the history of a certain musical instrument, the story of famous artist, or the different styles of music in Latin America?
My mother put together a dvd/cd that integrates culture into classical music in the foreign language classes (Spanish, Italian, and French) by bringing certain composers alive in class. She taught violin and orchestra classes and integrated her music classes with the history class and the foreign language classes. These are available from Applause Learning Resources.
The titles of the DVD/CDs are Classical Music in the SPANISH class and Classical Music in the ITALIAN class.
The Spanish DVD contains musical performances of Falla, Piazzolla,Turina, and Sarasate. Each composer is introduced by a Spanish teacher. The CD contains printable instructions and lesson plans about each composer. To find them easily type "classical music" in the Search box.
