NAfME Teaching with Primary Sources Curriculum Units for the 2014 Music Standards 

This unit is designed as a Capstone/Senior Project for students performing at the advanced ensemble level. Students working at this level must be able to work as independent learners and musicians, and as models and leaders in an ensemble. As advanced students, they understand the interdependence of multiple understandings in learning as evidenced by the influence of each artistic process on another one. Each student should approach the unit as preparation for college and career. Advanced students can use this unit at any point during the school year to explore the roles of composer, arranger, conductor, or performer. Students can then take on a different professional role by repeating the unit.
