All Around This World’s Global Music and World Cultures Curriculum provides a practical guide and inspiration for any classroom teacher of 3-9 year-olds to explore countries and cultures worldwide with their curious students. All Around This World uses music as “a way in,” enabling students to connect with people on every inhabited continent through the songs they sing. After building a musical bond students are open to learning more and more about people everywhere.Each “season” of original material consists of twelve weekly lessons that will take students on a tour around a geographic region of the world–Latin America, Africa, South and Central Asia, etc. There will be 12 “seasons” of songs, enabling a school to explore every inhabited continent over at least a three year cycle of material.Teachers using the AATW curriculum will use the recordings, lesson guides and videos AATW provides to lead their students on a virtual tour of that season’s region. Teachers of “big kids”–5-9 year-olds–will have particular success with the dances, games and other projects the curriculum provides that enables learning about world cultures to enter many curircular subjects.TEACHERS DO NOT REQUIRE SPECIAL MUSICAL ABILITY OR TRAINING.
