As Gary Spruce puts it himself: if this book were to have a subtitle it would be 'Ways of Thinking About Music'. Our conception of what music "is" is a crucial factor in defining what we consider important subject knowledge to be, and by implication affects how we design our curriculum, what we teach and the way we teach it. Through this reader, student teachers and practicing teachers will be introduced to the big issues and ideas abounding in music teaching today.
Can a boy-hungry Jersey girl survive the wilds of Canada with her eco-identity intact? A witty new YA novel from the author of SOPHOMORE SWITCH.
Jenna may hail from the 'burbs of New Jersey, but Green Teen activism is her life. So when her mom suggests they spend the summer at Grandma's Florida condo, Jenna pleads instead to visit her hippie godmother, Susie, up in rural Canada. Jenna is psyched at the chance to commune with this nature she's heard about - and the cute, plaidwearing boys she's certain must roam there. But after a few run-ins with local wildlife (from a larger-than-life moose to Susie's sullen Goth stepdaughter to a hot but hostile boy named Reeve), Jenna gets the idea that her long-held ideals, like vegetarianism and conservation, don't play so well with this population of real outdoorsmen. A dusty survival guide offers Jenna amusing tips on navigating the wilderness - but can she learn to navigate the turns of her heart?
