Posted on behalf of a colleague. Please excuse any cross-postings:

"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent," said Victor Hugo. Throughout history, man has used music and song to celebrate, to grieve, to woo, to entertain, to remember, to soothe, and to simply enjoy.  What role does music play in your students' lives? How do you use music in your classroom?

Please join Library of Congress Learning Page staff members and your peers in a live chat session. We'll discuss the role music can play in learning, and will share Library of Congress primary source materials related to music and song, including a new Primary Source Set on Civil War Music to download and use in your classroom!

Thursday, December 15, 2005 at 8:00 P.M. (ET) in the Library of Congress Group Room,
