Songs for Teaching is a website dedicated to “using music to promote learning.” According to the homepage:
Creative teachers can use music to teach content across the curriculum — to students of all ages. A host of educational experts brings you tested ideas for using the magic of music in your lesson plans.
This site contains thousands of pages for you to peruse — many with lyrics, sound clips, and teaching suggestions. The top educational pros offer practical suggestions based on the latest in brain-based learning. Innovative teachers share their classroom pointers and extension activities using children’s music.
Songs from a wide variety of popular artists are presented by academic subject. See the categories below to find educational music and children’s songs that complement your lesson plans.
Great resource! Unfortunately everything on the site is for sale, and it appears everything ships as a CD rather than being available for digital download. Still, the idea is great.
