SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Fine Arts Strand, Unit 5, Grade 2, Teacher's Guide--Multi-Ethnic Edition.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Fine arts for second graders are explored in the instructional and assessment activities of the fine arts strand of unit five. Four Spanish songbooks accompany kits 17-20; the recordings of the musical selections used are available on Cassette 17-20 (available separately from the Dissemination Center). The strand revolves around the theme of the school as a community and treats four spiraling questions dealing with the elements, wants and needs, change occurrences, and the results of change. Focus, objective, and materials for each activity are in Spanish and English, with teacher instructions in Spanish only. Singing, clapping rhythm band work, body movements to music, dancing games, and dramatics are some of the activities associated with the songs. Students learn to follow the direction of a simple score. They work with the elements of rhythm, form, the expressive qualities of timbre and musical style, the symbols for rests, the concepts of pitch, and the ascending and descending movement of the scale. Assessment activities provide testing materials to measure the knowledge gained in the instructional activities and to determine which concepts or skills need reinforcement. (DS)
