During these uncertain times in music education, students are showing us that music learning is more important than ever. Meaningful classroom work based on the WMEA and NAfME Music Standards can inform curriculum planning for online work and beyond. Teachers need to feel comfortable to be creative, engage their students, and share their great teaching ideas with the school community and families.
The advocacy discussion will involve:
- validation of standards-based teaching in classrooms
- how standards work can inform musical understandings for students
- how a performance-based classroom can change and still benefit from standards work
- ideas on how to reach out to administrators and school district stakeholders about the wonderful things happening in these uncertain times.
Participants will hear an overview about implementation of standards projects and units that can be implemented in-person or online, share their own experiences from this spring and examine their hopes moving ahead to fall. They will explore new ideas that they might try for their own students and chat about ways to advocate for continued support for school music study, no matter the delivery system chosen.
