Music in Our Lives. Syllabus/Handbook.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
This syllabus/handbook is designed to aid teachers and administrators in developing a music course to meet the New York State Commission of Education's requirements for a one year high school Music In Our Lives (MIOL) class. This class encompasses the areas of listening, performing, composing, using basic tool skills, and developing special interest projects. Each of the areas is discussed through "Learner Outcomes" tables which list objectives (e.g., knowledge, attitudes, skills), evaluative criteria for assessing the attainment of those objectives, a sample learning experience, resources required for the sample experience, and illustrative teaching/learning strategies. A handbook section is designed to prepare the teacher to teach a MIOL class which is student centered, relates to the musical growth of the students at individual levels, is based on their individual experiences with music, and allows the student to place student life experiences in musical contexts by stressing hands-on involvement. A Listening Log allows students to maintain individual records of their listening experiences. The syllabus areas are discussed separately in the handbook section, giving instructors introductions and suggestions for teaching those areas. Computer music, electronic music, and rock music can be integrated into the curriculum. A special note to administrators of the MIOL concept, a statement of the Regents' goals (State University of New York, Albany), and a discussion of students with handicapping conditions are included.
