Curricular Pillars in the Elementary General Music Classroom
Howell, Allen C.
Music Educators Journal, v95 n3 p37-41 2009
Karen, a veteran elementary general music teacher, was bewildered when she learned that none of her students remembered "Peter and the Wolf," a music lesson they have encountered in the past. Conscientious beginning elementary general music teachers like Karen may work diligently to plan instruction that will ensure that national, state, and local standards are met, only to find out later that students may have retained little of the information. In this article, the author explains why students fail to retain the key skills and information covered by lessons and unit plans. He offers a holistic teaching paradigm conceived by Patrick Jones, an associate professor of music education at Boston University. (Contains 8 notes.)
