3 Interpreting the Curriculum Maps Measurement Topic: The overarching organizational structure used to group content/concepts within the curriculum map for assessment purposes Pacing: The recommended time period within the year for instruction related to the essential questions to occur Essential Questions: The overarching question(s) that will serve to guide instruction and to push students to higher levels of thinking. Essential questions should guide students to the heart of the big idea or content and should meet the following characteristics: A. Endurance: important for the long term B. Leverage: applicable to or connected with many academic disciplines or concepts C. Readiness for the next level of learning: prepares students for success in the next grade/course D. Clarity: provides clear and common understanding E. Measurable: able to be assessed Concepts/Content: A list of the big ideas, broad topics, or major underlying concepts covered in the development of the essential questions Learning Targets/Skills: The content knowledge, processes, and enabling skills that will ensure successful mastery of the essential questions Benchmarks: The Sunshine State Next Generation Standards aligned with the learning targets and skills (see next page) Key Terminology: The content vocabulary and other key terms and phrases with which students should be familiar and that support mastery of the learning targets, skills and essential questions Activities and Resources: A suggested listing of high quality, appropriate materials, strategies, lessons, textbooks, videos and other media sources that are aligned with the learning targets, skills and essential questions Assessment: A list of district-required and optional classroom assessments at are aligned with the learning targets, skills and essential questions. Assessments should include formative assessments to monitor progress and inform instruction as well as summative assessments for grading and reporting purposes. ************************************************************* The curriculum maps for elementary music are divided into four sections, which align with the Big Ideas of the NGSSS: C Critical Thinking and Reflection; S Skills, Techniques, and Processes; O Organizational Structure; H Historical and Global Connections; F Innovation, Technology, and the Future. It is common practice that many or most of the Big ideas, and the concepts associated with them, are taught simultaneously in every lesson (hence the Spiral Curriculum ). The purpose of delineation into separate sections is for assessment purposes. Teachers are encouraged to use most or all the maps simultaneously. Further, the lessons provided in each map (which align with the Organizing Principles) are suggestions; teachers may use additional or substitute lessons/materials provided the learning targets, vocabulary, standards, and essential questions are addressed. It is hoped that by using this format, teachers will focus assessments guided by the learning targets of the maps while continuing to provide a comprehensive course of music study.
4 NEXT GENERATION SUNSHINE STATE STANDARDS USERS GUIDE FOR ALL USERS: A coding system is used in all curriculum guides to identify NGSSS and Course Content Statements. Benchmark Code: For easy reference, each strand, standard, and benchmark has been assigned a unique identification code. For example: MU.4.C.1.1 Content Area Grade Level Big Idea Enduring Understanding Standard Big Ideas C Critical Thinking and Reflection S Skills, Techniques, and Processes O Organizational Structure H Historical and Global Connections F Innovation, Technology, and the Future The first two letters of the code identify the content area (e.g., MU for music). The next number(s) identify the grade level. The next letter (C, S, O, H, or F) identifies the big idea. The next number identifies the enduring understanding, and the last number identifies the benchmark under the grade cluster within the standard.

16 Course Number: Course Path: TBA Course Title: Intermediate Music 2 Course Section: Grades PreK to 12 Education Courses Abbreviated Title: Intermed. Music 2 Course Length: Year Course Status: DRAFT State Board approval pending Course Description: Fourth-grade* students in music class explore artistic intent by investigating the inventive development of ideas, applying musicianship skills and techniques while engaging in the creation and interpretation of the arts. They analyze the characteristics of musical structures from simple to complex to build understanding and respect for the creative process. As they examine the significant cultural contributions in the arts throughout history, particularly in Florida, they become increasingly able to identify the connections among music and other fields of study. Music students also develop knowledge of careers in, and related to, the arts as they explore the impact of music on the local and global economies of the 21 st century and strengthen personal skills for success throughout school and beyond. General Notes: All instruction related to Music benchmarks should be framed by the Big Ideas and Enduring Understandings. Non-Music benchmarks listed in this course are also required and should be fully integrated in support of arts instruction. * Intermediate Music 1, 2, and 3 have been designed in two ways: 1) to challenge students on grade level who have previously taken classes in this content area; and 2) to challenge students whose education in this content area has been delayed until the intermediate grades. Music teachers of classes in Grades 3, 4, and 5 should select the most appropriate course level in the series based on each group s prior experience, the benchmarks, and available instruction time. Once elementary students have entered the series, they must progress to the next course in sequence. Examples: A 3 rd grade class that may or may not have taken Music previously should be enrolled in Intermediate Music 1 and progress through the series in subsequent grades. 4 th graders beginning formal instruction in Music for the first time may be enrolled, as a class, in Intermediate Music 1, and must then progress to Intermediate Music 2 in the following year. Special Note: This class may include opportunities to participate in extra rehearsals and performances beyond the school day. CRITICAL THINKING and REFLECTION: Critical and creative thinking, self-expression, and communication with others are central to the arts. Cognition and reflection are required to appreciate, interpret, and create with artistic intent. MU.4.C.1.1 MU.4.C.1.2 MU.4.C.1.3 Develop effective listening strategies and describe how they can support appreciation of musical works. Describe, using correct music vocabulary, what is heard in a specific musical work. Classify orchestral and band instruments as strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, or keyboard. MU.4.C.1.4 Identify and describe the four primary voice parts, i.e., soprano, alto, tenor, bass. Assessing our own and others artistic work, using critical-thinking, problem-solving, and decision- making skills, is central to artistic growth. MU.4.C.2.1 MU.4.C.2.2 Identify and describe basic music performance techniques to provide a foundation for critiquing one's self and others. Critique specific techniques in one's own and others' performances using teacher- established criteria.
17 The processes of critiquing works of art lead to development of critical-thinking skills transferable to other contexts. MU.4.C.3.1 Describe characteristics that make various musical works appealing. SKILLS, TECHNIQUES, and PROCESSES: Through dance, music, theatre, and visual art, students learn that beginners, amateurs, and professionals benefit from working to improve and maintain skills over time. The arts are inherently experiential and actively engage learners in the processes of creating, interpreting, and responding to art. MU.4.S.1.1 Improvise phrases, using familiar songs. MU.4.S.1.2 Create melodic patterns using a variety of sound sources. MU.4.S.1.3 Arrange a familiar song for voices or instruments by manipulating form. Development of skills, techniques, and processes in the arts strengthens our ability to remember, focus on, process, and sequence information. MU.4.S.2.1 Apply knowledge of musical structure to aid in sequencing and memorization and to internalize details of rehearsal and performance. Through purposeful practice, artists learn to manage, master, and refine simple, then complex, skills and techniques. MU.4.S.3.1 MU.4.S.3.2 MU.4.S.3.3 MU.4.S.3.4 MU.4.S.3.5 Sing rounds, canons, and/or partner songs in an appropriate range, using proper vocal technique and maintaining pitch. Play rounds, canons, or layered ostinati on classroom instruments. Perform extended pentatonic melodies at sight. Play simple ostinati, by ear, using classroom instruments. Notate simple rhythmic phrases and extended pentatonic melodies using traditional notation. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE: Works in dance, music, theatre, and visual art are organized by elements and principles that guide creators, interpreters, and responders. Understanding the organizational structure of an art form provides a foundation for appreciation of artistic works and respect for the creative process. MU.4.O.1.1 Compare musical elements in different types of music, using correct music vocabulary, as a foundation for understanding the structural conventions of specific styles. The structural rules and conventions of an art form serve as both a foundation and departure point for creativity. MU.4.O.2.1 Create variations for selected melodies. Every art form uses its own unique language, verbal and non-verbal, to document and communicate with the world. MU.4.O.3.1 MU.4.O.3.2 Identify how expressive elements and lyrics affect the mood or emotion of a song. Apply expressive elements to a vocal or instrumental piece and, using correct music vocabulary, explain one's choices. HISTORICAL and GLOBAL CONNECTIONS: Experiences in the arts foster understanding, acceptance, and enrichment among individuals, groups, and cultures from around the world and across time. Through study in the arts, we learn about and honor others and the worlds in which they live(d). MU.4.H.1.1 Examine and describe a cultural tradition, other than one's own, learned through its musical style and/or use of authentic instruments. MU.4.H.1.2 Describe the influence of selected composers on the musical works and practices or traditions of their time. MU.4.H.1.3 Identify pieces of music that originated from cultures other than one's own.
18 The arts reflect and document cultural trends and historical events, and help explain how new directions in the arts have emerged. MU.4.H.2.1 Perform, listen to, and discuss music related to Florida's history. MU.4.H.2.2 Identify ways in which individuals of varying ages and cultures experience music. Connections among the arts and other disciplines strengthen learning and the ability to transfer knowledge and skills to and from other fields. MU.4.H.3.1 Identify connections among music and other contexts, using correct music and other relevant content-area vocabulary, and explore how learning in one academic area can help with knowledge or skill acquisition in a different academic area. INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY, and the FUTURE: Curiosity, creativity, and the challenges of artistic problems drive innovation and adaptation of new and emerging technologies. Creating, interpreting, and responding in the arts stimulate the imagination and encourage innovation and creative risk-taking. MU.4.F.1.1 Create new interpretations of melodic or rhythmic pieces by varying or adding dynamics, timbre, tempo, lyrics, and/or movement. Careers in and related to the arts significantly and positively impact local and global economies. MU.4.F.2.1 Describe roles and careers of selected musicians. The 21 st -century skills necessary for success as citizens, workers, and leaders in a global economy are embedded in the study of the arts. MU.4.F.3.1 MU.4.F.3.2 Identify the characteristics and behaviors displayed by successful student musicians, and discuss how these qualities will contribute to success beyond the music classroom. Discuss the safe, legal way to download songs and other media.
