Music and History

13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments

The music is up-to-date, but the theme of the lyrics is Freedom and the Amendments freeing the slaves in the U.S. after the Civil War.

The SoundCloud web site provides streaming audio so you can easily set up the opportunity to play this engaging, meaningful song from a group called HistoryTunes. Engage your classes through music.

Thanks to @tsocko on Twitter for the heads-up.

Now, if you have not become involved with Twitter, perhaps you might reconsider.

The trick is to follow a selected group of people who share their passion through regular posts. Each post is short, with a maximum of 140 characters. Short doesn’t seem to matter though. The value of seeing these recommendations comes right through.

The hashtag #sschat is one of the elements of this tweet that matters, too. Not only can you follow a person like Tracy Sockalosky (@tsocko), you can track the posts that scores of people direct their messages to anyone tracking the chat about social studies.

Give it a try.
