You don't have to be Mozart to do these fun activities.
Here are just a few of the many opportunities that music offers for numeracy, literacy, creativity, and kinesthetic learning in elementary classrooms.

Don't forget about my big kids. They need Mozart too!

My violin is named Mozart and we travel everywhere together. My teens and young adults with ADHD love to explore his sounds. On a good day they can "feel" him too.

Music is everywhere. Give everyone a chance to make emotional connections.

So many work places require people to work in teams.  I wonder why school curriculum doesn't involve teams building skills.

"I know plenty of people who are really great people and really smart, but they are afraid to speak. They are afraid of ridicule. If you teach students to express ideas clearly so that they can't be misinterpreted, then students won't be so afraid to speak up anymore." -George Elsbury, 11th grade student

Coming to Broadway this Fall: Your class!
All the world is a stage, including your classroom. Think about teaching as a dramatic act as you consider director, cast, choreography, set design, and lighting.

3 fun activities that foster creativity in the classroom.
In a testing-driven environment, it's critical that we foster student creativity in the classroom, whether through open-ended projects, 20 percent time, or team-building activities.

Great opening sentence "One of the things that I hear teachers worrying about is the disappearance of creativity in the curriculum."  I find this sad.  Wasn't it Albert Einstein who said imagination is more important than knowledge?

Company Overview
Edutopia is produced by The George Lucas Educational Foundation, a private operating foundation dedicated to improving the K-12 learning process by documenting, disseminating, and advocating for innovative, replicable, and evidence-based strategies that prepare students to thrive in their future education, careers, and adult lives. As one of the world's leading sources for change-makers in education, The George Lucas Educational Foundation spreads the word about ideal, interactive learning environments and enables others to adapt these successes locally. Edutopia.org contains a deep archive of continually updated best practices, from classroom tips to recommendations for district-wide change.  

Description
Our vision is of a new world of learning, a place where students and parents, teachers and administrators, policy makers and the people they serve are all empowered to change education for the better; a place where schools provide rigorous project-based learning, social-emotional learning, and access to new technology; a place where innovation is the rule, not the exception; a place where students become lifelong learners and develop 21st-century skills, especially in information literacy so they can:
  • find, assess, and use information effectively and creatively
  • work cooperatively and constructively with others 
  • use their strengths and talents to become empowered, productive citizens in our democratic society and the world at large.
It’s a place of inspiration and aspiration based on the urgent belief that improving education is the key to the survival of the human race. We call this place Edutopia, and we provide not just the vision for this new world of learning but the real-world information and community connections to make it a reality.

General Information
Edutopia’s audience includes educators, parents, school board members, university faculty, community-based organizations, and the business community -- all groups working to create better schools for the twenty-first century.
