The purpose of this study is to explore the application of children’s Taiwanese songs in pedagogy. In Taiwan The teaching material I focus here is the Cen-Phin version, whose market share surpasses 50%. It has 12 volumes of teacher’s handbooks and multimedia song-teaching CDs. I also examine some songs in the Khang-siuan and Tshiau-Er versions as the music scores are available for discussion. The main issues of the exploration include the application and limitation of teaching children’s songs- the melodic lines of these children’s songs, the tone of the language since Taiwanese is a tone language, and the analytical study of the correspondence between poetry and music. There are five chapters in the thesis , starting with an introduction , the motivation , the purpose of the study, research methods and the scope and restriction of the study. Literature review entails the relevant studies of Taiwanese children’s songs and Taiwanese tonetics. Then the discussion focuses on the available, exemplary teaching plans of Taiwanese children’s songs. Based on related theories, we explore the correspondence of the melodic lines and the different tones of the lyrics and classify them into three categories according the level of correspondence between the poetry and music: consistent, roughly consistent and inconsistent. In the study, the Taiwanese children’s songs are treated as a tool to enhance the correct learning of the tones. In addition, there are detailed discussions about the unhelpful language learning conditions resulted from the interaction of lyrics and music, and applicable suggestions of adjustment in the hope of fulfilling the purpose of language teaching. The outcome of the study shows that, the overall circumstance at present is still not helpful for Taiwanese teaching with numerous obstacles and improvements for the currently available teaching materials of Taiwanese children’s songs are still very necessary. I hope this study could be used as a reference for educational institutes, publishers, song writers of Taiwanese children’s songs, teachers and parent groups when they are choosing, writing or applying children’s songs in Taiwanese teaching in the future. I believe that on the sound basis of consistent correspondence between poetry and music in Taiwanese children’s songs, the future masters of our society could bewell-instructed and more cultural heritage of truth, virtue and beauty with better expressions in lyrics, melody and artistry could be created when writing contemporary Taiwanese songs. Key words: Taiwanese children’s song, tone language, accent following the tone, melodic direction, consistent correspondence between poetry and music
