|Title||Children's Song-Makers as Messengers of Hope: Participatory Research with Implications for Teacher Educators - Abstract|
|Description||Pete Seeger, Ells Jenkins, Suni Paz and six other leading children'smusicians in the U.S. contributed their experience to this study about the crucialrole of music and singing for social justice in children's lives and its shrinkingpresence in U.S. pre-school and elementary schools. The study built its theoreticalframework on arts and music education, transformative education, and folk andsocially conscious children's music. Participatory research, based on therevolutionary education theories of Paulo Freire, guided the dialogues with theparticipants. These activist singer-songwriters were asked how they define socialjustice, how they involve children in singing, and what songs are especiallyeffective in raising social consciousness with children. They were also asked whichfactors are causing the decline in children's singing in schools today, and whatparents, teachers, teacher-educators, and musicians can do to help children developgreater self-expression, literacy, and social commitment through song-making. - Abstract|
