Music: A Powerful Pathway to Literacy

Spring Weekend Workshop: March 2-3, 2024

This past year, Taylor Swift and Beyonce changed the economy, Hip hop turned 50, and music is more popular than ever. In a 2019 research report by Common Sense Media, 55% of 8-12 year olds reported that they “enjoy listening to music a lot.” That number increases to 74% for 13-18 year olds. Reading and writing barely break into the double digits. How can music be a pathway to literacy? Music in the classroom leans into multimodal learning and enhances analysis, composing, listening, social commentary and craft.

Join OWP and K-12 teachers as we read current research on connecting music to reading and writing practices, participate in strategies that use music to support literacy skill instruction and share ideas that engage students and bring joy to the classroom. Built for and by K-12 teachers.

Class will meet at VOALC on March 2 and 3 from 8:30-3:30. 

Earn one graduate credit. CEU option is available.
