The Edge of the Hallways
A teaching day in a small northern Wisconsin high school starts with drums exploding, guitars screaming, keyboards accenting, and vocals harmonizing. The class, Pop Band, is an inspirational idea to get students involved in music. This story details not only the teaching of grammar, freshman English, and creative writing, but also describes conflicts with administration. Long before the rise of High School Musical and Glee, the author successfully creates a music class where students are molded into an unique group of performers. This books chronicles one term in the lives of these students.
