I love that they mention that "people shouldn't be thrown away either". What a beautiful mission in a place where they truly value music..

"True music literacy develops the ability to hear what is seen and see what is heard".  Musical literacy comes from the ability to interpret and perform music in connection with one's emotions.

Evgenia Dimas's curator insight, November 2, 2013 12:05 AM

Common Core can be successful in the music classroom. As music teachers, we should want higher order thinking to take place in our classes. CCSS will help us do this. I assume that creating/composing music will be a big part of this when the music standards are out.

While it's great that this project is empowering teachers to utilize music in their classrooms, I do have to wonder if they are being facilitated with proper pedagogy i.e. singing in head voice, in the correct key, and with a steady beat. I would also hope that the "music-based activities" were created by the appropriate authorities.
