I have been enjoying music and dance compilation videos that churches and other organizations have been putting together lately. Here is one of the Hallelujah Chorus that I find particularly uplifting and encouraging as well as fun:
Producing a video like this is a safe way to enjoy music and be socially distant.
This music video reminded me of a writing team lesson that would work for a lesson incorporating music from a safe distance in the classroom, or that can be easily adapted into a Zoom family lesson with video clips sent from homes. And, bonus points, it is the story of the exile Esther! Here is a video from board member Donna Grabert's church (Turning Pointe UMC):
The Writing Team's lesson is for a Music~Worship~Drama "Do Something" workshop. This special workshop features the wonderful music video of Matthew West's song, "Do Something," and instructions for how to make your own version of the video as a live performance in a worship setting or for classroom viewing. (Consider having families at home read Esther's story in advance and start the online group lesson with a quick review of the story.)
