Music--A Resource Guide for Standards-Based Instruction.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This guide is designed to provide guidance to New York state school districts and teachers to help students achieve the music standards. Teachers throughout New York state met to compile these field-tested lesson plans, teaching strategies, assessments, and resources for teachers of students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12, in all areas of music instruction including band, chorus, orchestra, and general music. While not intended as a curriculum, the guide provides age-appropriate activities in a sequence that allows for continuous development in all areas of musical study. It has two sections: (1) encapsulated instructional ideas with assessment references for each performance indicator--additional instructional ideas are also included, although not developed; and (2) appendices that provide information to further assist teachers in preparing and developing their instructional programs. In section one, the references in each entry are abbreviated (Appendices contain complete bibliographic information). The first section is organized by grade level grouping: preK-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; Commencement General Education and Commencement Major Sequence (9-12). Within each grade level grouping, standards and performance indicators in music are addressed by instructional ideas. Instructional ideas suitable for other performance indicators are identified, as is the appropriateness of the lesson for band, chorus, orchestra, and/or general music. In developing the guide, elementary performance indicators were used in creating instructional ideas for students in grades preK-4, intermediate performance indicators for students in grades 5-8, commencement/general education performance indicators for students in grades 9-12, and commencement/major sequence performance indicators for students pursuing a sequence in music.
