Teske, Patricia W.
This document presents strategies developed for teaching learning disabled, emotionally disturbed, or intellectually limited middle school students in the music classroom. The proposed strategies are designed to meet the following criteria: (1) the musical activities are to be musically appropriate for middle school adolescents; (2) each activity will encompass social implications appropriate to the music classroom setting; (3) the activities will generate success; and (4) the strategies will have the ability to promote both individual and group self-esteem. The document outlines several different features of the proposed program of musical strategies including: philosophy, goals, theoretical rationales, needs assessment, instructional objectives, instructional strategies, resources, curriculum design, staffing, evaluation provisions, and budget. Three appendices provide: (1) explanations of three types of handicapping conditions at issue; (2) a list of 14 conditions essential to implementing an appropriate program for the high risk secondary population; and (3) a set of four recommendations made by the Level V Secondary Special Education Study Committee. A 9-item bibliography is included. (DB)
