Teacher professional development and classroom resources across the curriculum
Music plays a central role in Lisa’s life and in The Children of Willesden Lane. Musical selections from the book can be downloaded from this Web site. These selections can also be found on the companion CD included with the print version of the curriculum guide. Throughout the curriculum guide there are interdisciplinary lessons that draw on the musical selections.
In the video, high school history teacher Martina Grant brings in music teacher Jeff Arzberger to help students appreciate the classical piano music that runs throughout the book. As homework, Martina has assigned the Writing Idea from page 27 of the curriculum guide: “What would you take if you had to leave home and could take just a few items of importance?”
