The Mosaic Project s Musical Curriculum supports students (K-6) in developing the social and emotional competencies that are key to their success in the classroom and beyond. The musical curriculum and accompanying experiential activities teach students vital skills about conflict resolution, social justice, community, diversity, interconnectedness, and peacemaking.
*Music and lyrics for each of The Mosaic Project s 11 songs
*The Mosaic Project's CD
*18 lessons designed to accompany The Mosaic Musical Curriculum on themes including:
*The Mosaic Values (Mutual Respect, Open-mindedness, Self Respect, Attitude, Individuality and Community)
*Experiential activities that include music, art, games, role plays, cooperative challenges, and extended group projects
*Creative ideas for integrating Mosaic music into a wide range of classroom learning and pedagogy
*Mosaic Class Meetings overview and suggested framework
*Suggested Children s Literature to accompany each song and theme
*Correlations to the Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) Standards

Extensive research shows that music facilitates learning and recall of information. With the Mosaic songs, children learn lessons in a fun and engaging manner that is reinforced every time they sing, whether in the classroom, on their way home from school, or after they brush their teeth.
"Teaching about social justice can be very challenging. Students, children and adults alike, may feel fearful and perhaps defensive when learning about issues of difference, prejudice, and social change. Our music helps to create a safe, comfortable, fun environment in which to explore these issues. It also helps us to reach students with varied learning styles in an experiential, emotional, and multi-sensory way."
- From Peacing it Together's Foreword by Brett Dennen, Singer/Songwriter and Co-creator of the Mosaic Musical Curriculum

The Mosaic Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, works towards a peaceful future by reaching children in their formative years.
We unite young children of diverse backgrounds, provide them with essential skills to thrive in an increasingly diverse society, and empower them to strive for peace.
We create a microcosm of the diverse, inclusive, just world we want to see and show our young students that peace is possible.
We seed the future population of middle schools, high schools, and all the venues of adult life with thousands of individuals who have seen a new possibility of what the world can be. Not only are our students inspired to work towards peace, they have been given concrete skills to do so and are empowered to take action.
Our principal program is a unique outdoor school in which we unite 4th and 5th graders of diverse backgrounds, provide them with essential skills to thrive in an increasingly diverse society, and empower them to strive for peace.
Unlike any other organization of which we are aware, The Mosaic Project profoundly reaches children in elementary school before prejudice becomes entrenched. Over the last 10 years, we have served over 5,600 4th and 5th graders in our Outdoor School. In addition we have served over 900 high-school and college students through our Youth Leadership Project, over 11,000 students through our In-School Project and over 1,000 adults through our professional development trainings. Our participants have been profoundly affected by our programs
