General and Specific Outcomes for Grades One to Five Music.
Morin, Francine
This guide was developed in response to a mandate for music teachers in Transcona-Springfield School Division No. 12 (Manitoba, Canada) to generate a set of music learning outcomes to guide and standardize assessment and evaluation practices across the division. The currently legislated K-6 music curriculum (Manitoba Department of Education, 1978) was re-fashioned to reflect new outcomes, curriculum models, and content areas deemed developmentally appropriate by the profession, as well as music curriculum and instruction practices in the divisional context. The new curriculum framework describes general and specific music learning outcomes for grades 1-5 and is written with the general music program in mind. The learning outcomes identify what the learner should know or be able to accomplish in music at the end of each grade level. The goal is for all learners across the division to strive for and attain the same high, consistent standards of achievement. These outcomes integrate the concepts, processes, skills, behaviors, and conventions unique to the discipline of music. To help the students reach these outcomes, Transcona-Springfield teachers provide their elementary children with opportunities to explore music through singing, moving, listening, playing instruments, creating, reading, writing, and technology.
