Prepare to Rock:Jewish Music Specialists Guide to Curriculum & Instruction (PreK - 6th grades)

If you teach music in a supplementary school, this class will prepare you to maximize your time with your students while minimizing the prep time needed for planning, organizing, and finding resources to utilize in your work.  

Pedagogic principles, a better understanding of developmentally appropriate practices, and a strategic approach to curricular planning will help you address common challenges. At the end of this course, you will be prepared to design learning experiences, find new repertoire for students with diverse abilities and preferences.

Participants will learn ways to facilitate Jewish education through music by holistically engaging your students  through singing and listening and also through writing, reading, art, movement, games, and more. We also will explore ways to utilize technology in Jewish music education.

Participants will examine the role they play in their school’s community and assess their satisfaction with their own efforts. This class is designed for educators who have some experience leading or teaching music in Jewish environments, so be prepared to share your expertise and experiences so that we can learn from each other.
