SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Fine Arts Strand, Unit 6, Grade 2, Teacher's Guide--Multi-Ethnic Edition.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Instructional and assessment activities for second graders are presented in the teacher's guide to the unit six fine arts strand. Four illustrated songbooks accompany the unit's kits and are supplemented by a cassette recording (available separately from the Dissemination Center) of the music. Focus, objective, and materials for each activity are given in English and Spanish; teacher instructions are given only in Spanish. The four kits revolve around the basic theme of the neighborhood as a community and four spiraling questions pertaining to the elements, wants and needs, occurrence of changes, and results of changes. Singing, creative dramatics, games, rhythm gymnastics, making tambourines, and finger plays are among the activities. Pupils learn about the ascending and descending movement of melody; pitch; expressive qualities of sound (dynamics, rhythm, and tempo); and meter. Other activities pertain to the aural and visual identification of music symbols: the quarter and eighth notes, the repeat sign, time signature, and the names of the notes and their progressive order on the scale. Each of the kits is designed for a period of instruction of two to three weeks. (DS)
