Teach Creativity Through World Music
By Anthony Jackson
January 5, 2013

“[A]s we consider implementation of the Common Core, there is reason to add the arts back into the daily diet of our students, starting in the earliest grades.

“The Common Core calls for students to consume information and build literacy across media and disciplines, to analyze it, and then create their own projects.

“For instance, third graders can ‘recount stories, including fables and folktales from diverse cultures, and determine their central message, lesson, or moral,’ and ‘create engaging audio recordings of stories or poems that demonstrate fluid reading at an understandable pace; add visual displays when appropriate to emphasize or enhance certain facts or details.’”
