A Guide for Planning Musical Experiences.
Hansen, DuWayne, Ed.; And Others
Intended to assist Ohio music teachers in long-range instructional planning, this publication is a comprehensive guide for curriculum development for all levels and types of music instruction. It can be used by educators in other states as well. The guide is comprised of an introduction and five chapters. The introduction expresses the purpose of the guide and identifies seven broad goals which support elementary and secondary music education. Chapter I "The Basic Components of Sound" specifies learning objectives for all types and levels of music education. The objectives are organized into seven components: pitch, duration, loudness, timbre, texture, form, and style. Chapter II is concerned with those "Instructional Settings" in which music teaching-learning occurs. This chapter presents guidelines for developing graded courses of study in general music, choral and instrumental music, and music theory. Each setting is discussed in terms of its purpose in the curriculum, appropriate teaching approaches, and the selection of the content for instruction. Chapters III and IV deal with ways to extend musical opportunities and assessment and evaluation. The fifth and final chapter deals with the "Administration of the Music Program." It is concerned with measuring the effectiveness of the program and instruction, and it provides a rationale for developing a competency-based education program in music. The appendix lists competency levels for elementary general music. (Author/RM)
