Hands on session for music specialists and classroom teachers teaching music. Engaging, easy-to-use assessments will be shared and created. Educational and brain research indicate powerful effects of engaging students in educational experiences that involve music. Gardiner reminds us that while integrating the curriculum, we need to honour the disciplines as separate entities; musical intelligence is included. How can a regular classroom teacher include and assess music education in a meaningful way? This session will involve participants in a lively hands-on experience and furnish them with ready-to-use assessment strategies for the classroom. Music specialists and classroom teachers will leave this session with engaging ideas and effective ways to assess student learning in music. Be ready to participate, and have fun!
