If you follow #elmusedchat on Twitter, then you know that Theresa Turner @TunefulTechie holds a weekly chat about topics for the elementary music educator. The chats usually occur on Sundays, at 8 pm CST. Last week, she held one on World Music. This week will be about encouraging reluctant learners.
I encourage you to check out her #elmusedchats as well as her blog at https://elementarymusiced.com. If you miss the chat, you can see the posts on her blog!
