True stories behind the songs : a beginning reader  Cover Image Book Book

True stories behind the songs : a beginning reader / by Sandra Heyer.

Heyer, Sandra. (Author).


This book features the lyrics for eight songs along with real, believe-it-or-not stories about the songs and the songwriters. Companion stories related to the topic of the song are included in the units along with exercises for vocabulary development, reading comprehension and writing and speaking practice.
"Music is a powerful connection we all share: to our culture, our personal lives, and history. This resource has a format that is accessible to literacy learners, and provides insight into out musical landscape. In particular, the story '13' (on the Depression) and story '5' (on Ernie Bunett) combine human interest with historical context. I highly recommend this book!" – April 2012 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
