Building Reading Comprehension Through Sound and Rhythm

  • Overture Center for the Arts - Promenade Hall (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

With Kennedy Center Teaching Artist Imani Gonzalez

Art form:  Music

Appropriate for Grades 1-5 teachers - Targeted Grade 2

Enhance student learning by using sound and rhythm to explore ways to help students develop reading comprehension strategies and make connections between music and language. Teachers are guided through a process to help students create a Soundscape, a way to retell the story that connects students to the story’s tone, mood, seng, and the characters’ culture(s). This learning process will help students attend to sensory images, use questioning strategies, respond to inference, and determine importance which helps students develop a better understanding of the text. Students will develop listening skills through collaboration, build interpretation and oral presentation skills through communication, and improve reading fluency through creativity. See how music can make full use of these skills through students’ 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!
