Music of America's Peoples

The Americans All music CD contains 22 original recordings of historic songs representing diverse ethnic and cultural groups. In addition, during the program's pilot phase, Chicago teachers, students, parents and volunteers worked together to produce a theme song, “Many Children,” for Americans All. Both the lyrics and the music embody the spirit of the program. The song reflects the theme of ethnic harmony and the importance of education to our nation’s future.

A teacher’s guide, prepared by Dick Spottswood, contains the recordings' scores and lyrics as well as background information and suggested activities that include the use of other Americans All resources (e.g., photographs and posters).
