Spaces of Rupture: Wondering, Wandering, Remixing
Benedict, Cathy
Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, v16 n1 p79-94 Aug 2017
This response is based on my presentation at Teachers College, Columbia University celebrating the launch of Allsup's (2016) book, "Remixing the Classroom: Toward an Open Philosophy of Music Education." I enter the text with openness, and with a willingness to ponder and consider. As such I offer the following considerations for further "thinking through." These are considerations, given the context of the book, I feel are necessary to address: independent musician, child centered / learner centered, or constructivism writ large, learning outcomes, and finally the space in the elementary setting for the kinds of pedagogical engagements and purpose Allsup outlines throughout his text.
