SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Fine Arts Strand, Unit 9, Grade 3, Teacher's Guide.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
The fine arts strand of unit nine for third graders is oriented toward the basic theme of the nation as a community. While kits 33-36 teach the child music theory, creative dramatics, songs, and dancing, they also deal with 4 spiraling questions pertaining to the individual, his alternatives, how he can initiate change, and the results of change. This teacher's guide contains fine arts instructional and assessment activities. Focus, objectives, and materials for each activity are given in English and Spanish, with teacher instructions only in Spanish. Songbooks accompany each of the four kits and a cassette (available separately from the Dissemination Center) records the vocal and instrumental selections. Group and seatwork activities are described, including such exercises as singing songs, discussing their meanings, and relating them to the spiraling questions. Specific music concepts explored include the relation between sounds and music symbols; note staff positions; the timbre of string instruments; two part harmony; the metric value of the quarter, eighth, and sixteenth notes; and music styles, expression and rhythm. Assessment activities provide appropriate testing materials by which to measure the child's knowledge acquired in the instructional activities and to determine concepts needing reinforcement. (DS)
