Teaching with Music

In several of my courses I have incorporated “listening” homework along with traditional readings. The playlist links below correlate to some of the units from my Postwar America, 1945-present course, and are updated continuously. They will open up a link to the Spotify playlists (you can either sign up or launch them in your player). Feel free to subscribe and share, and suggestions for additions welcome!
