Year at a Glance Lesson Planning

Posted in Lesson Planning by P. Conrad on November 21, 2009

In Jefferson County, Colorado teachers are guided by “Year-at-a-Glance” lessons plans that organize each year’s music learning into three trimesters. These are keyed to the district’s standards, but can easily be adapted for use with NYS Arts Standards or with the five strands of the Department of Education’s Blueprint.

The documents are worth looking at as an example of macro planning in music education. Their language suggests that the curriculum writers are familiar with Kodŕly methodology’s organizing concepts (“prepare” / “present” / “practice“).
