Wisconsin's Model Academic Standards for Music.
Nikolay, Pauli; Grady, Susan; Stefonek, Thomas
To assist parents and educators in preparing students for the 21st century, Wisconsin citizens have become involved in the development of challenging academic standards in 12 curricular areas. Having clear standards for students and teachers makes it possible to develop rigorous local curricula and valid, reliable assessments. This model of academic standards is for the area of music. The introduction defines the academic standards, explains how they were developed, suggests how to use the standards, and how to apply them across the curriculum. An overview of music is divided into the following sections: performance (singing; instrumental); creativity (improvisation; composition); literacy (notation); response (analysis; evaluation); and connections (the arts; history and culture). Sample proficiency standards are also included. (BT)
