This article was very informative. It gave great examples of how to teach sound and how to bring the discussion into the classroom. For example, it talked about drawing the students into the lesson by using a cartoon where the characters are arguing, and then having the students back up what character they agreed with. The students would then have to support their idea by showing evidence. This is a very good way to get the students involved and actually caring about what they are doing. The article also goes into an explanation of how to introduce the different materials and how to take care of them, which is very helpful. Then the article gives many ways that the teacher can extend the lesson. Overall, this article is very helpful when thinking about how to introduce sound to students.
