One of my best experiences was meeting Amy Burvall. She came to our presentation about the online book. After our presentation, I got a twitter message from Amy Burvall...She is the lyricist, singer and dancer of the HistoryTeachers Channel on Youtube. Below is my favorite music video she has done. It was played over and over again during class...in fact, a few teachers would come in and dance. Her songs will get you and your class dancing.
Mike and I spoke a great deal with her about how her work has inspired our students to create their own music history videos. I plan to send her a few examples later. It was a great pleasure to meet this special teacher who is influencing millions of students around the world. She should get an award.
Check out her work at the links below--Also check out her TED Talk later in the fall. She is airing a new music video live on TED.
Here are her links:
My first blog on her work was April 6, 2011: History class with rhythm.
Below Amy's Video are a few pictures from Boston and BLC11
Let TFT and HistoryTeacherz know your thoughts on this outstanding work.
