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

Throughout this unit students will be learning about the historical significance and cultural context of patriotic melodies. Resources housed in the digital holdings of the Library of Congress (LOC) will allow students an opportunity to explore information, artifacts, and audio recordings of many beloved melodies from American history. In addition to the primary source material made available through the LOC will be the LOC’s Inquiry Method, which encourages students to Observe, Reflect, and Question that which they are studying.
