  • Previous Editions 2010, 2007, 2004
  • 528 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 sixth grade, along with more than 150 songs from different cultures and historical periods. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.
