Using Music in the Classroom, Part 2
Quick tip: Use an iPod and plug directly into classroom speakers to that you always have music ready to go quickly. I was using my laptop and I was always had to move from my desk over to where the speaker hookup was located. That time wasted without music is a missed opportunity. I created playlists for each type of activity: feel-good music (for when the students come into class), work time music (instrumental music for reading or group work) and transition music (upbeat songs with faster beats per minute to help speed up transitions).
