From "I" to "International": Toward International-Mindedness through Interdisciplinary Music Instruction
Holmes, Alena; VanAlstine, Sharri
Music Educators Journal, v101 n2 p45-50 Dec 2014
International-mindedness is defined in many different ways in education discourse. Some of the definitions include the ability to be open-minded and respectful of cultures and peoples or having an awareness of the interconnectedness of people not only intellectually but also with growing empathy. Do music educators have any role in helping students acquire and develop international-mindedness? We would like to suggest it is an essential part of music education and an exciting way to teach/learn about cultures and music. We describe eight strategies of an Internationalized Approach to Instruction (IAI) that can make learning cultural musics more meaningful, accurate, and exciting for teachers, students, and the community.
