Creative Activities for Music and Humanities Classes.
Parker, Gail Underwood
This resource contains lessons and reproducible student worksheets for use with middle, junior, and senior high students. The lessons, which can be used as part of a general music program, a music appreciation class, or a humanities class, explore composers, music repertoire, careers, musical values, elements of music, personal music preferences, and music's role in society, past and present. The book contains directions, worksheets, checklists, and guides to interest students in the lives of composers through role-playing experiences. Students are engaged in musical decisions through real-life simulations, scavenger hunts, interviews, and independent or collaborative research. An activity comparison chart gives an overview of the lessons in alphabetical order. This chart indicates the format of each lesson, the focus of the lesson, and whether it involves the community. The guide concludes with curriculum overviews, sample lesson overviews, and category charts of songs, themes, and symphonic selections. (MM)
