Piecing Together the 20th Century: An Interdisciplinary Unit on Principles of Collage in Modern Music, Art, and Poetry (Grades 4-8)
Smigel, Eric; McDonald, Nan L.
General Music Today, v24 n3 p10-16 Apr 2011
This theory-to-practice article focuses on interdisciplinary classroom activities based on principles of collage in modern music, art, and poetry. A two-lesson sequence was designed for an inner-city Grade 4 and 5 general classroom of English language learners, where the unit was taught, assessed, and documented by the authors. Included in the article is a detailed teaching script for use by classroom teachers, music teachers, and related arts specialists for Grades 4 to 8. Readers are guided through lesson materials, instructions, interactive hands-on activities, and assessments appropriate for young students with little or no background in music and other arts. (Contains 5 figures.)
