101 Ways to Repeat a Song
Dr. Vincent Bates, Weber State University
The power of song in teaching and learning is optimized when children know songs by heart, a process that requires much repetition. This workshop will provide practical strategies for maintaining student engagement and intrinsic motivation while repeating a song. Participants will also examine how multiple curriculum standards can be addressed by repeating, exploring, and adapting familiar songs
