Description

Did you know that...





an ex-girlfriend--not a stranger on a subway--inspired the song "You're Beautiful"?





the tradition of singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" at baseball games is relatively new?





the song "I Have a Dream," which made Susan Boyle a celebrity overnight, describes her own life?



More True Stories Behind the Songs, by Sandra Heyer, continues the True Stories tradition -- with a twist. The text features lyrics for eight popular songs along with real, believe-it-or-not stories about the songs and their songwriters. Companion stories related to the topic of the song round out the units. To see a sample unit, please go to pearsoneltusa.com/sampleunits.



Teachers are encouraged to download the songs from their favorite website or to use a version they already own. Or you can purchase recommended recordings on iTunes. A link on the True Stories website (www.pearsoneltusa.com/truestories) will take you directly to the playlist. For a limited time, your Pearson representative will provide a free, legally copied CD of all the songs with a minimum order of 20 copies of More True Stories Behind the Songs. Please go to www.pearsoneltusa.com/specialists to find your nearest representative.



Features
