Course Syllabus for Grades 9-12, Music. Band.
Murray State Univ., KY.; Henry County Public Schools, TN.
Teachers in the Henry County Public School System (Tennessee) developed and wrote over 80 course syllabi for most subject areas taught in grades 7-12 for a Teacher Corps demonstration project. The intent of the project was to inform students and parents of specific requirements in each subject at each grade level. This outline is written for a band course for which the prerequisite is that the student have some playing experience. The course objectives include developing the student's ability to work with a large group and perform increasingly difficult music. By the end of the year, the students should achieve a minimum level of competence in recognizing music vocabulary, the principle forms of music, and the different instruments, and be able to produce a rich, full tone with reasonable facility and accuracy. The course requirements, learning materials, and learning activities are listed, including voluntary and advanced studies. The criteria and methods for student evaluation are reported. (FG)
