Music & Literature Resource

Hey all.

Brainpickings.org, which I recommend for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is because Maria Popova describes her site as “a human-powered discovery engine for interestingness” has a great page called “literary jukebox.”  It’s a “side project” Popova does in which she picks a great literary quote and matches it thematically with a song (you can play the song on the site).

I love this because it’s fun (nerd alert) and because it might be an awesome mini-activity, warm-up, closure, or home work assignment when students are reading anything in class.  🙂

You could even great a bulletin board jukebox (or Ipod), where you could keep track of your book-long, marking-period-long, or year-long jukebox selections.

Enjoy!
