I am a general music teacher in an elementary school in the south side of Chicago. My classes include teaching general music to students in grades K-8. The students are predominantly African American, and many students sing in community choirs. The school does not have music text books. I am in the early stages of building up an adequate supply of classroom instruments, textbooks, recordings, and dance props to provide these young musicians with the opportunity to formally study music and the arts. For this project I am requesting two items, which in entirety will constitute the sixth grade music curriculum. The curriculum set requested, “Musicplay” by Denise Gagne, includes the teachers guide with lesson plans and CDs. “Musicplay” contains traditional early childhood music activities such as movement, music reading, and singing. I am also requesting 30 student textbooks which will be reused from year to year. The National Music Standards are addressed in this curriculum. This curriculum is especially attractive because it places an emphasis on developing literacy through the student books. Children read the text of words and standard music notation. I teach in a school that is working to raise reading scores and improve literacy rates, so this literacy feature is an added bonus. In later projects I will request curriculum for upper grade levels. My eventual goal is to obtain a complete set of student and teacher music books, in addition to recordings for each grade level. I sincerely appreciate the generosity of all individuals and groups who contribute to Donors Choose towards this long-term project. Thank you.
