All – Music Advocacy (band, choir, orchestra, general music)
In this activity, students will answer questions about music advocacy. Teachers can use the articles and check comprehension in the following ways:
- Students answer the questions at the end of each article
- Generate a class discussion via Zoom
- Imagine your school board is going to cut the music program due to budget cuts. Write a letter to the school board to convince them to keep music classes intact.
Directions: Download the article(s) and view the TED Talk. After reading the articles and viewing the TED Talk, answer the questions or be prepared to discuss the content in a Zoom call. Your teacher may create additional projects, such as writing a letter to the school board about music advocacy.
