New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This guide contains lesson plans for music teachers and music specialists in grades K-4. The role of music education is to provide a balanced exposure to all music and musical experiences, allowing students to develop tastes and skills based upon a broad knowledge of music. The guide consists of two levels. The first half of the guide contains lessons for use in grades K-2; the second half includes lessons for grades 3-4. Each level contains a scope and sequence chart and is organized by the following six areas of musical development: rhythm experiences, singing, listening, playing instruments, reading music, and creating music. Students are involved in many activities including dancing; singing; recording and listening to their own voices; playing rhythm sticks, the tambourine, and the triangle; and reading music. Background notes to the teacher are provided. Procedures to follow, preparation necessary, and evaluation techniques are provided for each lesson. (Author/RM)
