I am so interested in you doing a musical with your class. I was a music teacher for 15 years and now teach in 4th grade. I would love to do a musical to conclude an historical unit but would be so interested to know how you dealt with different issues. Did your school pay the exorbitant royalty fees? Was your administration on board with focusing solely on the musical in lieu of other stuff? I definitely believe that performing a show of any kind addresses so many facets of the standards and/or the Common Core, but not sure how administration would look at that. And finally, how did it go?! I'm sure it was amazing. Kids love to perform, parents love to watch.
