- In order to learn more about the perspectives of professional musicians and to hear wonderfully intimate live classical music performances, students listen to Saint Paul Sunday on the radio or via audio files archived on the Web site. Students read supporting text-based information about the musicians and the music played. To demonstrate what they have learned, students write reviews or response papers about the music, the performers, the performance, the interview, or the show as a whole.
- Students learn about the creative process by reading about the production of a Saint Paul Sunday show in the feature "Behind the Scenes at Saint Paul Sunday." After reading the main article and viewing the accompanying slideshow, students listen to the show being discussed, Juilliard String Quartet, produced May 7, 2000.
Tips and Techniques
- Audio files are included in the archives of Saint Paul Sunday beginning in April, 2000.
- Find "Behind the Scenes at Saint Paul Sunday" in the "Features" section of the St. Paul Sunday site.
- Remember to have students cite sources for information or quotations they use in reports, multimedia documents, or other educational projects, including photos and audio clips. Students should include the following information in their citation: document title or description, date of publication or when they found it on the Web, an address (URL), and, if possible, the author, photographer, or artist.
