Computer-Assisted Instruction in Treble Clef Note Reading for Gifted, Primary Students.
Craig, Patricia D.
A program was developed using computer-assisted instruction to enable gifted primary-level students to learn the basic elements of note reading in the treble clef at individual speeds and without stress of competition. The target group was selected from students enrolled in beginning and advanced ukulele classes. The computer-assisted instruction included identification of the music staff, note reading on the treble clef, identification of ledger lines, identification of the music alphabet, word spelling using the music alphabet, and practice in decoding a message using the musical alphabet in combination with the English alphabet. Students applied note-reading skills by preparing and performing a recital piece. All seven of the participants scored at least 80% on a post-test, and all seven of the students were successful in preparing and presenting a recital piece. Appendices contain a list of characteristics of gifted students, a ukulele contract, pre/post-test, form for student evaluation of the program, project outline, documentation for the computer software used, and excerpts from student journals.
