An original composition written by two of my gifted 8th grade students for their graduation ceremony, inspired by their own final year. It’s now LIVE on Spotify! – Listen now! (Recorded on June 13th, 2019, Performed live June 14th, 2019)
Harvard’s “Education Next” journal had a wonderful write-up about the pacesetters in personalized learning. The article talks about Summit schools and the platform they use developed by Facebook’s Zuckerberg. My school was lucky enough to mentioned in the article for the work we do, in particular the personalization that takes place in my ukulele class!
To get the ukulele basics under our belts, 6th grade learned and performed the easy and adorable tune of “LAVA” We broke the song (and class) into 4 different parts then used three basic chords, and after a day of “in-formances” put it all back together again as a complete song!
