I teach high school, and am curious to know what people do about music in the
classroom. Last year I allowed the kids to choose the radio station, and it
was either hip-hop or rock & roll. So I chose one on odd days, and the other
on even, but on the days that I said no radio, I was offending one camp or
the other. It really caused a lot of friction, so this year I've decided
that kids will have no say at all, and I'll just play classical. I've also
instituted a no-talking policy,and music will fill the silence nicely.
Someone told me Mozart inspires creativity. Any suggestions on Mozart?
Other artists? Comments on music and talking in the room in general?
