These modules about "PAN"--short for "steelpan" are directly related to the attempt to find ways in the culture and speech of young people in Trinidad and Tobago to improve their school Literacy. The collection is for the teachers-to-be of these young persons especially those who are at risk. Many of them reside in the still poor areas where the steelband originated. Music (and percussion music at that) is another gateway to Literacy. It entails composing,creating, reading, listening,speaking, writing and co-operative learning. Local teachers can make adaptations from the very useful modules that are included on teaching (young children) about the pan, even though these are written from a U. S. perspective. They can also involve the resource persons ("panmen") who visit their schools to work exclusively with the school steelband in more related whole-class activities.
