The population of students is all inclusive, therefore, we are all in need of accommodations. Music can be a great equalizer, because it can be manipulated as a creative tool to meet the needs of every individual. It is available to every person, no matter the ability or age, however, good teaching practices are a necessity for effectiveness.
After discussing and experiencing the six "E's" of Effective Classroom Management, workshop participants will be able to identify behavioral descriptors to formulate classroom expectations.
