Sounds Like Teen Spirit - Music That Helps Teens Tune In

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For teenagers, music frequently provides a means to identify and label emotions. In music with lyrics, teenagers express happiness and sadness, frustrations and relief. Music helps to express issues arising from relationships with family or friends. When teenagers use music as a mood-modifier, it can be used to reinforce and perpetuate negative emotions as well as positive emotions. Learn how to: - use songs with lyrics to explore current topics, trends and experiences. - use music to help an anxious teen relax. - discuss the benefits and harmful attributes of some music - yes, music can harm. - incorporate music in the classroom to set the tone of an assignment, or time of day. - write new lyrics to an existing song to explore creative writing and to uncover the educational experiences within it.
