The New National Core Arts Standards and World Music
Beegle, Amy Christine
General Music Today, v30 n2 p33-35 Jan 2017
Following an overview of the organization of the new National Core Arts Standards, this column provides a listing of the new standards that include terminology related to "world music": "world music," "culture," "cultural," "context," and "authentic." The term "world music" is absent from the standards charts, but cultural context is included throughout the standards, particularly for older grade levels. The most applicable anchor standard to the study of world music is No. 11: "Relate artistic ideas and works with societal, cultural and historical context to deepen understanding."
