Family Favorites for Different Genres of Movies

Posted by Administrator on 5/23/2012 to Homeschooling
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a genre is a “category of artistic, musical, or literary composition characterized by a particular style, form, or content.” We would add the idea that nearly any form of media (written, auditory, or visual) can be categorized by genres. It’s just one of many different ways that a person can discuss books, television programming, short stories, movies, and more. Over the next few weeks, we thought it would be fun to look at over a dozen different film genres (ranging from animated to westerns), briefly defining certain characteristics common to any film in that genre, and then listing some of our favorite movies from the given category. We’d love to have your input, as well! Share with others what your favorite films are from each genre are and why. We look forward to being introduced to new-to-us titles, or being reacquainted with film ideas we had forgotten!

The Advantages of Music (Listening or Playing)

14,200,000 results. 14,200,000! That’s how many results my computer pulled up when I searched for an answer to the question, “What are the advantages of listening to music?” Needless to say, I didn’t research all of them. Honestly, I got to page three and gave up. Some sites were totally irrelevant to my goal. Others were promoting styles of music with which we disagree (no, I don’t believe there can be Christian rap that is more effective than any other style of music in elevating my heart to worship God). And some sites were beyond my four-year-degree comprehension. But most of the relevant results upheld the theories many of us already have regarding music listening.
