Featuring the music of Stealer's Wheelers.,
This review is from: The Little Book of Music for the Classroom (Independent Thinking Series) Using Music to Improve Memory, Motivation, Learning and Creativity (Hardcover)You might or might not be convinced about the ways music can help the learning process, but it's hard to trust a person who's so slipshod about her research that she can't even be bothered to get the names of pop groups or songs right, or insists that the writers of songs are the performers. Stealers Wheelers? The Quad City DJs (The Train)? Obviously someone who really knows their stuff.
Apart from that, it seems that you only need about a dozen old pop records and a few dreary new age albums to be completely set up, as the same few records can be used for almost any learning strategy. Essentially you get the same (misspelt and misattributed) list 20 times, apart from the one dealing with dyslexia, which apparently can be helped by singing along to a few glamrock era anti-school tunes by the likes of Alice Cooper.
What a load of old tosh.
