Finding Inspiration in Middle School General Music
McAnally, Elizabeth Ann
General Music Today, v24 n3 p5-9 Apr 2011
Middle school general music programs can be vibrant, exciting places, where students are inspired to learn more about music and themselves. In this article, the author discusses how to work with rather than against adolescents' age-appropriate characteristics when planning "content", "process", "assessment", and "classroom environment". Then, she offers a brief description of thematic study from her own general music classroom, through which students explore five composers and the inspiration for their work. (Contains 5 notes.)
