1) Please write a 500-word response to the reading, providing a critical reflection upon the main ideas based on the article linked below.

2) Describe 2-3 ideas on how you might integrate popular music or non-Western music into the junior classroom (grades 4-6). These ideas should be well-developed (i.e. a couple of paragraphs) and specific (i.e. what exactly would you teach, and how would you teach it? What instruments/resources/technology would you need?). You may wish to draw on other curricular content, or choose musical genres important to the school community you engaged with on practicum.
