track Louis Armstrong What
a Wonderful World.
The sequence works like this: students work from clips of lyrics to illustrate--unwittingly--slides
that combine to produce a collaborative slideshow or music video of sorts.
The first student, then, created a scene that would go with "trees of green." In a low-tech classroom,
the teacher can simply flip the drawings while the song plays. I picked this up from Marti Lamar at
the GKCWP Summer Invitational Workshop in 1999.
