I think after reviewing my 20 questions there are several main themes. One of them has to do with culture and incorporating different cultures, languages, and history into general music curriculum. Another large theme had to do with keeping students engaged so no one gets bored or uninterested. The last major theme had to do with curriculum planning and how to introduce certain subjects/topics to my Elementary classes. Based on my questions I think i'd be very interested in studying culture in classrooms and how to incorporate the cultures and backgrounds of all of my student's in the curriculum.
