Teach Language, Literacy, and SEL through Song: Developmental Ukulele, Guitar, and Collaborative Songwriting
ACC, Level 2, 213D
This hands-on workshop will explore cultivating language, phonological awareness, reading, writing, and developmentally informed social-emotional learning through the power of singing, playing, and composing “Songs for Learning” with students. Participants will experience a simplified, developmental sequence of instruction on ukulele and guitar that is integrated with vocal music and collaborative student songwriting UTK-12. This scalable approach boosts instrumental and vocal practice through songwriting with traditional songs and sentence frames. We'll work in large and small groups and in pairs to build essential learning and SEL-informed collaborative habits.
