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

This unit is designed with flexibility in mind. The lesson may 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. It is designed for ensemble members with approximately 5 years of experience. Differentiation suggestions may be used to reach learners of varying experience or proficiency.
