About this Grantee

Through “Musically Increasing Content Knowledge (MusICK),” Ms. Ford and her partners use technology and music to increase social studies and science content knowledge. Students research topics for each unit of study and work with a visiting artist to write lyrics to reinforce the curriculum concepts. Collaborating with classmates, students record original songs related to social studies and science content and create a resource library of content-based music for future classes.
