Make it relevant:
"When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school
Its a wonder I can think at all..."
-Simon and Garfunkel, Kodachrome
Differentiate instruction to accommodate all learners:
"He stands like a statue
Becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean
He plays by intuition
The digit counters fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball"
-The Who, Pinball Wizard
"A little respect (sock it to me, sock it to me,
sock it to me, sock it to me)
Whoa, babe (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
I get tired (just a little bit)
Keep on tryin' (just a little bit)
You're runnin' out of foolin' (just a little bit)
And I ain't lyin' (just a little bit)
(re, re, re, re) 'spect"
-Aretha Franklin, Respect
Create a positive learning environment:
"Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation"
-The Fifth Dimension, Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In
"Without music, life is a journey through a desert."
"And we'll go dancing, baby, then you'll see
How the magic's in the music and the music's in me"
-The Lovin' Spoonful, Do You Believe in Magic
