Teacher Resource Reference List


The following pages and lessons are suggested references for this unit. References listed
may be used in whole, or in part, by the music teacher. The teacher may desire to use other
resources in addition to, or instead of, the ones listed.
Music Makers, at Home in the World, “Seashore” section, published by Music Matters,
Inc. for Musikgarten. Authors: Lorna Heyge, Audrey Sillick. Copyright 2000.
The “Seashore” section of the book is originally intended for a 75-90 minute class, so
splitting each lesson into 2+ weeks is necessary. The 8 week program should be stretched
to 16-22 classes. If choosing the Performance Selective, assuming 8 weeks for Winter
concert preparations and 8 weeks for Spring concert preparations, is just about right.
Suggested Assessments:
Each of the Essential Outcomes should be taught and assessed. Teachers are able to utilize
the attached rubrics to help aid them in assessing students at the A and B level for Music
class.
