Many middle schools are encouraging interdisciplinary experiences for their students. This piece is a fantastic way to collaborate with your English department to create learning extensions for both disciplines. Carolyn uses the Lewis Carroll text beautifully to capture the mood of a brave boy who slays a fierce Jabberwock. There is some three-part work in the piece, but it is mostly repeated material. A great way to dive in to a legendary poem.
