        Sing for Change

        In this episode of NJEA’s Classroom Close-up, students at Blackwood Loring Flemming Elementary School use their voices to educate people about bullying, respect, and self-acceptance. With knowledge of bullying’s enormous negative impact among even very young children, music teacher and choir director, Erica Guillama, decided to integrate themes of character education and bullying awareness into her music class. Her fourth grade students perform a concert for the community, singing songs with positive social messages and wearing shirts with positive descriptive words about themselves. Students also engage in bullying awareness exercises, such as crumbling up and stomping on paper to model the permanent negative effects of bullying.
