Instructional Ideas

  1. When students come to an unfamiliar term while reading a text about a topic related to music, students can search this app’s glossary to find the term and learn about it. Students can keep track of the terms they researched by “favoriting” them. This way, students will be able to review the terms when needed.
  2. If a teacher assigns students key terms to learn, students can use this app to quickly locate the terms’ definitions and pronunciations.
  3. When discussing a topic related to music, teachers can pre-select key terms students must know to engage the conversation. When teachers pre-select these terms, they can “favorite” them. Then, as they lead the discussion, teachers can open their “favorited” terms list and show the class the terms’ definitions.
