Music is one of those great equalizers that can really bring a history lesson to life. Mr. Westfall, social studies teacher, and Mrs. Tan, orchestra teacher, planned a cross over Americana Unit for the seventh grade. Some of the string students learned a few pieces of music relevant to the times being studied in social studies. The teachers then helped students make connections about the time period, travel, instruments and lyrics.
