Musical RE

Having used music often in my teaching, I thought I’d do some research on using music in teaching and inclusivity. I expected the results to be positive: in other words, I expected music to have a beneficial impact on the students’ learning. Contrary to my expectations, a load (yes, good research terminology employed here) of kids hated these lessons. Some even seemed antagonised. One persistently refused to engage with anything musical (“What’s this got to do with RE?). Conclusion: the kids are crazy, or, the kids have been fed so much crap music that they no longer know how to engage with a decent song. Or, this bunch of kids didn’t appreciate the particular music chosen and another bunch would give exact opposite results.

*How* subjective is this kind of research?!?
