December 27th - Music Spilling Out Of Control

“Where words fail, music speaks.” Hans Christian Andersen
The above quote summarizes my reasoning for choosing this photo. For many people, music is a relatable form of text, poetry set to a tune. Many of my students are able to extract deep themes and symbolism rooted in the lyrics of their favourite songs far easier than they are when it is presented to them in traditional text or essay form.

My name is Emma Sarbit and I am an elementary school teacher from Lake Country B.C. (just north of Kelowna in the Okanagan Valley). I am just returning from maternity leave and will be taking my 7th and 8th classes in the MET program this term. I am looking forward to taking this course as I am interested in how technology can be used to stimulate and reinvigorate student interest in literacy.

I look forward to working with all of you this term!

    I often tell kids in Writing 12 that song lyrics are some of the best poetry ever written.

    Hey Emma,

    Nice to see you in another MET course. I hope you had a good start up to the new school year. Must be different/difficult going back to work after your maternity leave.

    Looking forwards to working with you again,

    Hi Emma, I was just looking at an upcoming ProD opportunity in Kel… As if I don’t get enough with MET, lol. It’s nice to be working with you again.
