    Very good points. I would definitely use this information in the classroom.

    Overall some good points to integrate into literacy. But as a music teacher, I wish that the presenter would have:

    1. differentiated between "music" - organized sound (quote from Edgard Varèse, composer) - and "noise" - disorganized sound. For example, I am certain that when she selects background sounds for her classes that she does prefer "organized sound" (i.e., music ) to disorganized sound (i.e., pans falling on the floor, cars crashing, etc. :-).
    2. proofread slides. A number of the slides seemed to be compiled hurriedly in Part 1.

    Overall, I have learned a lot of helpful tips, and will definitely incorporate them into my music. lesson plans.
