General Notes

In this introductory theory course, students develop fluency in reading and writing music, as well as knowledge of basic form.  Acquisition of basic aural and keyboard skills provides students with skills to express themselves creatively through music.  Public performances may serve as a resource for specific instructional goals.  Students may be required to attend one or more performances outside of the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom.

English Language Development (ELD) Standards Special Notes Section:

Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting.   For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
