Music Literacy for Upper Elementary, Middle School and High School by Daniel Anker, Carol Ponder & Donna Santman.
Based on the critically acclaimed film featuring musicians from the Philadelphia Orchestra, this curriculum is flexible, thought-provoking and accessible for use by music and non-music teachers alike. Students explore music through listening, discussing, writing, creating, musical mapping, and more. Chapters cover stimulating topics, such as how we identify with music, the meaning of music, and the role of music and musicians in society.
Kit includes a teacher's book with reproducible activities, a listening CD, and a special teacher's DVD excerpted from the film, plus bonus segments especially for the classroom. This insightful, practical curriculum is "a field guide to the human imagination that will encourage students to listen, think, and create" (Edward Bilous, Julliard School). Purchase includes public performance rights.
