Educator Workshop:
Building Reading Comprehension in Early Literacy
Through Sound and Rhythm

Photo credit: Imani Gonzalez
 

Teachers will learn how to create a “Story Soundscape,” a way to retell a story using sound and movement.

Through this process, students will be able to identify the story’s tone, setting, character, and culture as they attend to sensory images, use questioning strategies, and respond to inference. Students develop listening and communication skills through collaboration, interpretation, and oral presentation while improving reading fluency through creativity.

The workshop demonstrates how music can make full use of these skills through aural, visual, analytical, creative, and social intelligences. Your students will attain a new level of comprehension when they experience seeing, hearing, and feeling through their reading.

This workshop is recommended for Reading Specialist, Elementary, English Language Learners, Special Education, and Music teachers.

Workshop supports the Michigan Reading, Speaking and Listening, and Language Standards for K-5.

This workshop was developed in association with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is partially underwritten by the U.S.Department of Education and the National Committee for the Performing Arts.
