Idaho Elementary Music Course of Study: A Guide for Excellence in Music Education.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
Designed to present the content requirements needed to satisfy K-8 proficiency expectations in music for the state of Idaho, this course guide identifies four overall goals for students to strive to achieve. In goal 1, students will perceive and understand the elements of music, including rhythm, melody, harmony, tempo-dynamics, form, and timbre. Goal 2 states that students will develop skills in performing, creating, and listening to music. Goal 3 declares students will gain an understanding of mankind's rich heritage of music and its development throughout history. In goal 4, students will grow in appreciation, enjoyment, and discrimination of music. In each grade and for each goal and goal subpart, different objectives are put forth to help students at a particular grade level achieve the goal. The four overall goals also have been used to structure the scope and sequence plan for teaching music to K-8 students. A number of appendices are included: (1) condensed glossary; (2) general glossary; (3) resource materials (24 items); and (4) state songs. (DB)
