Music: Grades Nine through Twelve. Black Swamp Arts Scene Course of Study: Talented and Gifted.
Defiance County Office of Education, OH.
This course of study was developed for high school students in the Defiance (Ohio) public schools who are talented and gifted in music, providing for an indepth and sequential development of skills and concepts. The program's philosophy stresses that, while the products of the arts are important, a need exists to emphasize the learning process as satisfying in and of itself. It focuses on sensitizing the whole person to the arts and to developing the imagination. Options in meeting the needs of gifted students in music include accelerated educational experiences in cluster groups within regular classrooms or in enriched music classrooms serving gifted children. A scope and sequence chart for grades 9 through 12 lists program and subject objectives for several components of a music theory/appreciation curriculum, covering pitch, duration, loudness, timbre, texture, form, style, and technical objectives. Methods of evaluating student progress are noted. (JDD)
