What do sorts sound like?

I do not know about you, but I think sorts are sexy!  Well, not really, but when you turn the sorts into music, then you might be getting my attention.  Most students do not find sorts all that exciting especially when they see them running in plain text – sorts in a black DOS window are not sexy!  Adding some music and animation should increase student interest as most all of them love videos and music.  Making them get up and act out the sorts helps as well.  Students learn in many different ways and often demonstrate intelligence in different ways and we need to do more to recognize this.  Howard Gardner came up with a whole mess of different intelligence types back in 1983.
