ART BRIDGES: Lesson Plans for Enrichment, Growth and Healing

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Jan 22nd, 2016
In the fall of 2013, the remarkable Jean Martin (a resident of Legacy Retirement Communities in Lincoln, NE) approached Hildegard Center for the Arts (HCFA) with a “seed of an idea” to bring enriching art experiences to Senior Citizens everywhere. At some ninety years young, Jean (an artist, teacher, and art curator) envisioned a project which she called “Anyone Can Do It!”. Her idea was to pull together files of art lesson plans and box them up to go to retirement communities where existing staffs would be able to implement them for the enrichment and enjoyment of the residents.

Teacher Deduction Made Permanent and a Look Back at Teacher Spending

New Book: Welcome to the Symphony: A Musical Exploration of the Orchestra Using Beethoven’s Symphony by Carolyn Sloan and James Williamson

By Teachers.Net News Desk • Dec 11th, 2015
Using one of the most famous works in classical music—Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony—here is the perfect way to introduce a young child to the world of classical music. This charming and interactive picture book with its panel of 19 sound buttons is like a ticket to a concert hall, taking readers on a journey from the exciting first moment when the musicians begin tuning up to the end of the first movement (attention newcomers: don’t clap yet!). At each step of the way, readers learn the basics of classical music and the orchestra: What is a conductor? What is a symphony? Who was Beethoven? The different aspects of music: melody, harmony, tempo, theme. And the families of instruments—strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion.
