Re/sound: Songs of Wisconsin is a collection of educational media resources for general music programs serving grades 4-8, and is a collaboration with Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA).
In a state-wide survey and listening sessions with music educators, PBS Wisconsin Education learned about the need for current, authentic, culturally diverse resources, as well as support in teaching with and about music from different cultures. These educator-stated needs shaped the direction and goals of the collection.
This multimedia collection includes video interviews with Wisconsin musicians, performances, audio files, and educator engagement guides designed to help activate the media with learners. In addition, Wisconsin School Music Association and PBS Wisconsin are offering virtual professional learning workshops with Re/Sound performers and use of educator engagement guides. The interactions for Winter 2020-2021 include:
