An outstanding resource for educators, Teaching Music Across History will help your students understand the ways that music and the arts reflect our culture and how historical events have shaped our civilization and customs. Reproducible student pages are included, making lessons a snap to prepare, keeping students actively engaged, and allowing for easy assessment. The accompanying CD contains listening examples of works by great classical composers to support and reinforce the lessons. By increasing critical and higher level thinking skills with winning, creative, ready-to-teach methods, Teaching Music Across History will help your students meet item 9 of the National Standards for Music Education ("understanding music in relation to history and culture"). This excellent curriculum will encourage your students to incorporate a deeper understanding of history and heritage, and allow you to effortlessly integrate historical information within music instruction.
