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.

I just want to know if anyone knows of any of these. I've seen Mario Paint and Sim Tunes but they don't seem to actually teach anything, just be toys.

Aleks Zivanovic's insight:

An example of creativity when choosing subject matter for a composition.  It goes to show that anything can be an inspiration and it gives the composition a great meaning.

It is so great to hear students collaborating about the meaning of musical terms.  This video shows that students can develop their literacy skills by analyzing and discussing music.

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.
