In today’s multicultural global society, teachers are faced with the struggles of developing and reframing curricula to be more culturally responsive and creatively engaging. This includes helping students succeed while working within mandated state standards and testing guidelines. Students need new ways in which to think critically and make reasoned decisions. These skills are crucial to our economy, improve language and presentation skills, and promote creativity and career success. Educators are working hard to develop arts-integrated lesson plans and activities that focus on improving students’ achievement levels, self-esteem, social awareness, and civic participation, all through a multicultural lens. MeMA-Music addresses these challenges while creatively engaging students.
