"You Get What You Get"? Learner Agency in the Early Childhood Music Classroom
Koops, Lisa Huisman
General Music Today, v31 n1 p44-46 Oct 2017
In this article, I suggest that providing opportunities for agency (student choice or control) in the early childhood classroom could enhance student learning. One important way that young children demonstrate agency is through expressing color preference. I encourage teachers to look for opportunities to give children choices and control in the classroom, including selecting colors of classroom props or leading a conducting activity.
