One Land, Many Voices: Ethnic Heritage through Music.
Nohling, David L.
This guide contains administrator, teacher, and student materials for a college-level ethnic heritage course. The course content focuses on the significance of music as a powerful cultural expression of ethnic groups through student exploration of local radio programs and festivals, music of family and friends, and use of information from the social sciences. Chapters include suggestions for using the materials in various settings (external or classroom instruction), a checklist to be used when promoting the course, sample course descriptions, and ways to evaluate students (samples of assignments, essay tests, and objective tests). Further topics detail suggestions for class meetings including ten types of activities; checklists for administrators and faculty concerning possible student needs; and a description of the student-faculty-institution communications network. A student guide introduces the course; explains goals, requirements and use of the guide; gives an overview of radio programs and units, a schedule of class sessions, deadline dates, and broadcasts, and information about the instructor. For students taking the course externally, a section on study skills and institutional procedures is included. The final chapter examines the history of the course, course concepts, available materials, examination and evaluation, student attitudes, and the importance of feedback for the instructor. (CK)
