Introduction to the Companion Website

This site is designed to provide easy access to the songs referenced in Because We Can Change the World. For each song cited in the text, links are provided for you to hear the song, find the lyrics, and, in some cases, hear others perform the song as well. Links to the songwriters' websites and ordering information for their recordings are also included. The author is extremely grateful to the song writers whose work is featured here. Readers are strongly encouraged to seek out other songs and recordings by these musicians for use in the classroom and community.

Although readers might want to use the link directly with those they teach, it is highly recommended that the link be used FIRST to hear the song and practice how to teach it.

Also contained on this website are some additional references for cooperative games and community building activities.
