Transcript Sing Along With Sid For law students, a constitutional law class usually means a semester of Marbury vs. Madison, Richard Nixon and John Marshall. But those in Professor Sidney Buchanan's class get an unusual addition to the regular syllabus. "Let's sing a song about Marbury vs. Madison," says Buchanan. The students turn to song No. 1 in a little handbook called "Sing Along With Sid: A Constitutional Law Musical Adventure" and sing to the tune of "The Eyes of Texas" (or "I've Been Working on the Railroad"): The eyes of Marshall are upon you; As you legislate. The eyes of Marshall are upon you; He will review your slate. Do not think you can escape him; Your law must pass his way; As keeper of the Constitution; The Court will have its say! Buchanan, who has taught for 21 years, developed his innovative approach to teaching almost a decade ago when he started putting parts of his lectures to music. After spending a summer composing lyrics to songs like "Clementine" and "Anchors Away," he now uses singing on a regular basis to help his students learn about the long arm of the law. "I have always enjoyed celebrating events in life through music, so it struck me to be a fun thing to do in the classroom," he said. To write the songs, he said, he picks a topic and sits down to write out the words to music. Some songs take days of thought; others take hours. He added that the students like the songs and almost everyone participates. "Some really get into it." Buchanan wrote "A Professorial Farewell" to say goodbye on the last day of class, when he and his students sing together one last time. Now that's ending on a happy note. — Georgeann Sheppard Michael P. Masek Debbie Matcek Barbara Lynn Maxson Emmanuel Mbagwu Myrell Denice McCormick s E N I O R S Trace McGee Alexander McKay Wayne P.
