Reading, Movement Education and Music: An Integrated Approach.
Holt, Dennis M.; And Others
This article presents a model developed through a project that was designed to enhance teacher education at the university level. The basic goal of the project was to enable preservice teachers to view the teaching of reading, movement education, and music as a holistic process which encompasses aspects of the school day and emphasizes the development of content understanding, teaching skills, and positive attitudes toward each subject. Affective and cognitive goals were determined. Cognitive goals were divided by subject area, and included skills and content. The curriculum of the reading methods class was based on four structures: (1) one-to-one diagnosis and teaching; (2) small group direct instruction; (3) total group instruction and integration of the disciplines; and (4) total group and individualized instruction. For the movement curriculum, teachers were taught that competent teaching in movement education required the development and mastery of cognitive, psychomotor, and affective understandings. The music curriculum involved the acquisition of music skills, analysis and observation of teaching and learning events, and peer teaching skill development and application. A sample lesson of the integration of the three subject areas is described. (RJC)
