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

This unit is designed with flexibility in mind. The lesson can be used with a choir, smaller ensembles, or solo singers. It may be used in-person or remotely. The teacher should preview Lesson 4 and determine the format of the final project before beginning the unit; the format of the final project may influence grouping and instructional strategies in Lessons 1–3.  

Though it is designed for students at the Accomplished level, differentiation suggestions in each lesson may be utilized to reach learners of varying experience or proficiency. 

Students at the Accomplished level are—with minimal assistance—able to identify or solve arts problems based on their interests or for a particular purpose; conduct research to inform artistic decisions; and create and refine arts products, performances, or presentations that demonstrate technical proficiency, personal communication, iii and expression. They use the art form for personal realization and wellbeing, and have the necessary skills for and interest in participation in arts activity beyond the school environment.
