Teaching Music to Students with Special Needs: A Label-Free Approach
Hammel, Alice; Hourigan, Ryan
Oxford University Press
A practical guide & reference manual, "Teaching Music to Students with Special Needs" addresses special needs in the broadest possible sense to equip teachers with proven, research-based curricular strategies that are grounded in both best practice and current special education law. Chapters address the full range of topics and issues music educators face including parental involvement, student anxiety, field trips and performances, and assessment strategies. The book concludes with an up-to-date section of resources and technology information. Following a foreword by Colleen Conway, the book is divided into 4 parts: (1) The Current Landscape of the Special Education System; (2) Preparing to Teach Music to Students with Special Needs; (3) Practical Classroom Adaptations, Modifications, and Assessment Techniques for Teaching Students with Special Needs in the Music Classroom; and (4) Resources for Music Educators.
