About this book


Recontextualized: A Framework for Teaching English with Music is a book that can benefit any English teacher looking for creative approaches to teaching reading, writing, and critical thinking. Providing theoretically-sound, classroom-tested practices, this edited collection not only offers accessible methods for including music into your lesson plans, but also provides a framework for thinking about all classroom practice involving popular culture. The framework described in Recontextualized can be easily adapted to a variety of educational standards and consists of four separate approaches, each with a different emphasis or application. Written by experienced teachers from a variety of settings across the United States, this book illustrates the myriad ways popular music can be used, analyzed, and created by students in the English classroom.

“Together, this editor/author team has produced a book that virtually
vibrates with possibilities for engaging youth in ways that speak to their interests while simultaneously maintaining the rigor expected of English classes.” – Donna E. Alvermann, University of Georgia
