MUS 304 - Teaching Music in Sceondary Schools


4 credit(s)
The primary purpose of this course is to prepare music education majors to successfully teach instrumental and choral music in secondary schools (6th to 12th grade). This course’s secondary purpose is to provide students with intellectual and practical knowledge that will ensure their positive outcome on the edTPA exam, which is the performance-based, subject-specific assessment that is required for all Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade teachers. In addition to general topics such as managing successful secondary music programs, foundations of educational psychology and contemporary earning theories, this course will equip students with practical experiences in developing unit and lesson plans and ways of conducting data-driven assessment in music courses. The Comprehensive Musicianship (CMP) approach to teaching music will serve as the theoretical framework for learning rehearsal techniques including selection of music, score analysis, daily rehearsal planning, and preparations for concerts and festivals.
Prerequisite(s): MUS 301 .
