by Ricardo Castillo in


Baltimore, MD - Revolution Rhythm, LLC announces Baltimore City Public Schools’ adoption of its arts integrated world geography/social studies program, Sounds Around the World (SAW). At the center of the SAW protocol is an innovative game, combining global music, team competition, and specialty maps, that offers outstanding student motivation and proven educational outcomes. In addition to supporting NCSS C-3 and Common Core Standards for Social Studies, SAW’s collaborative-learning format equips students with essential 21st century skills. Designed for middle and high school students, SAW has been played by students from diverse backgrounds in a wide-variety of learning environments. The protocol employs the gap theory of education, which recognizes curiosity and the desire to fill in knowledge gaps as powerful motivators for learning. SAW was designed by Baltimore musician, music therapist, and owner of Revolution Rhythm, LLC, Jason Armstrong Baker and will be presented at the National Council for Geography Education in Washington D.C. in August 2015.
