I hated that I felt constrained in sending your entire post back in my
reply to the net! I certainly hope everyone read your post. This is such
a superb multicultural lesson! I know you were presenting it as a lesson
on rhythm and it is also wonderful for that, but I feel sometimes we stray
from the intent of multicultural lessons and this one is so perfect: "Many
families have moved to out area...This lesson attempts to honor those
choices." And in doing so, it shows respect for diversity. Summa cum laude!!!
