Research findings repeatedly show that music is one of the subjects which teachers feel least confident to tackle. There are many reasons for this, not least being the lack of appropriate guidance and training. This book is designed to help overcome these problems by providing class teachers with clear advice on how to plan, resource and deliver a comprehensive programme which will challenge their pupils and enable them to progress and meet national requirements. The book includes examples and activities which can be used as a basis for in-service training within schools, particularly for teachers who regard themselves as non-specialists.

Dem Fach Musik wird eine besondere Eignung zur Förderung von Kreativität zugesprochen. Entsprechende methodische Möglichkeiten wie das Erfinden von Musik sind derzeit jedoch kaum Unterrichtsgegenstand. Diese Arbeit diskutiert das Erfinden von Musik in aktuellen und traditionellen Ansätzen sowie in einer Schulmusikbuchanalyse. Der Blick auf den internationalen Diskurs, insbesondere nach England, führt zur Entwicklung eines Modells für das Komponieren im schulischen Unterricht. In einer quasi-experimentellen Unterrichtsstudie wird die Wirksamkeit eines zugehörigen Unterrichts untersucht. Joana Grow forscht an der TU Braunschweig in den Bereichen Musik erfinden mit Kindern, Musik und Sprache, Lehrer_innenprofessionalisierung und Gender.

This is an innovative yet practical resource book for teachers, focusing on the classroom and covering vital skills for primary and secondary teachers. The book is strongly influenced by the findings of numerous research projects during which hundreds of teachers were observed at work. This book addresses both formal and informal ways of assessing children's work and progress. Pupils' learning is often neglected in the debate, so this book puts what children actually learn right at its centre. Divided into six units, Ted Wragg addresses important topics such as: * principles and purposes of assessment * written, oral and practical evaluation * self-assessment the 'whole school' approach * staff development and appraisal. The inclusion of practical activities, discussion topics, photographs, cartoons and case examples makes this a very user-friendly book for both trainee and experienced teachers in primary schools.

Now educators can put research into practice and benefit from the wealth of knowledge and research acquired over the centuries on the power of music. With easy-to-follow lesson plans, sing-along CDs (sung in a suitable pitch for the young child), and supporting literature, educators can gain musical confidence as they explore research on child development, learn how to create a music-enriched environment and build musical confidence, see a curriculum time-frame, and follow lesson plans with ideas for further musical creativity and exploration. In addition, the multicultural section shows how to set up an early childhood music setting that maximizes the benefits of a variety of cultural values and practices.
