Songwriting for Social Justice
Composed by PS 32K 4th Grade Students
The Metropolitan Opera Guild's in-school residency programs are designed to support integrated arts education within the general classroom. This means that while our Teaching Artists are there to teach students about music, singing, and writing and performing songs, etc., that we are simultaneously collaborating with classroom teachers to connect to their students' general studies. This past year at P.S. 32 in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, 4th Grade students worked with Teaching Artist Megan McCormick to study the words of world-changers.
