Do you have resources and tons of activities, but lack the time to mold them into a unit or a curriculum? Are you not sure what resources to use to meet the needs of all your elementary students as well as cover the standards? Are you struggling to meet your school's academic curricular requirements while teaching with quality music repertoire?
These challenges will be addressed in a two day elementary curriculum workshop, which will provide you with tips to help you meet the Kansas and National Music standards while creating a music curriculum that works for your students and your school.
The workshop will focus on giving you ideas, guidance, and time to outline your music curriculum using resources available to you and that meet the needs of your school. Suggested resources will be provided and can be recommended, but the goal will be to help you use resources available already.
You are the expert on your students! This workshop is here to help you maximize your time and resources!
