  • Published

  • 512 Pages

Overview

The market-leading text for the Elementary School Music Methods course, INTEGRATING MUSIC INTO THE ELEMENTARY CLASSROOM was the first to emphasize the theme of integrating music throughout the school day. Anderson and Lawrence show future educators how to make music an effective part of the entire elementary curriculum. The text introduces the songs, instruments, sources of age-appropriate music, and methods of making music in a multicultural environment—making the text perfect for students with no prior knowledge of the fundamentals of music. With easy-to-use techniques for teaching young children how to sing, play instruments, move to music, create music, listen to music, and understand music, this text relates music to all subject areas. Notably, the authors provide sample lesson plans for kindergarten through grade six, along with more than 150 songs from different cultures and historical periods.

  • Professionally produced audio files of over 60 songs included in the text are available on the online resource center; an access card is packaged with the book at no additional cost. Many new songs, including some from Latino cultures, have been added to this edition. The files can be downloaded to any MP3 player or computer, which not only helps students become familiar with the music, but gives them a head start on creating their own music libraries.
  • Increased emphasis on instructional technology and the Internet includes specific references for downloading additional music selections. There are also suggested videos and other classroom lesson plan resources, all included on the new companion website to help future teachers develop their classroom resources.
  • New video segments show students in the classroom setting providing future educators with real life examples of how these techniques are utilized in class.
  • Updated "Special Learner" sections throughout the new edition help guide teachers in assisting students with special needs to participate in classroom musical activities.
  • New sections on cooperative learning, interdisciplinary opportunities with other teachers, and community and school resources have been added to enhance musical learning.
  • This text emphasizes the integration of music into the total elementary school program. The authors make specific suggestions on how to integrate music with other areas of the curriculum and prepare students to teach in a variety of elementary classroom settings.
  • For easy reference, a Song Index located in the front of the text lists each song covered in the text—including the grade level, key, range, meter, integrative category, and page number.
  • A contemporary approach based on national music standards, and including the methodologies of Dalcroze, Kodaly, and Orff, gives students a solid grounding in teaching methods.
  • Specialized chapters on singing, playing instruments, listening to music, and moving to music help the future teacher draw on a variety of resources aimed at enabling young children to find and use their talents.
  • The text's focus on cultural diversity (throughout the text and in a specific chapter) reflects modern elementary classroom populations and helps students anticipate the challenges and rewards of working in diverse elementary classrooms.
  • Each chapter now begins with objectives and references to national standards, to give future teachers a professional context for the material. Each chapter ends with Questions for Discussion.
