Video: PSEA Learning Lessons: Taking music outdoors
At the Western Wayne School District's EverGreen Elementary in Lake Ariel, there are children sitting in pairs, sharing headphones and an iPod shuffle. Some pairs lay in the grass, watching slow, puffy clouds float by. There is a light breeze as the last of the summer sun kisses students' cheeks.
This isn't a scene from a quiet day at recess. It is a fourth-grade music class with teacher Kathleen Riley, and the children are listening to classical music. Later, they will talk about the connections between nature and the composer's thoughts.
Watch the program in action, and read more about it in the July issue of Voice magazine.
Through Learning Lessons, a new feature in Voice, PSEA hopes to showcase the great work educators do every day.
