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

This Library of Congress (LOC) Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Unit is aligned with the Artistic Process of (1) Responding, defined as understanding and evaluating how music conveys meaning, and (2) Creating, the application of musical concepts to develop original musical ideas. Through application of inquiry-based instructional strategies linked to Essential Questions embedded in the Responding (Select, Analyze, Interpret, Evaluate) and Creating (Imagine, Plan and Make, Evaluate and Refine, Present) Process components, students come to understand how creators manipulate the elements of music to convey expressive intent related to specific contexts (social, cultural, historical). Acquisition of music knowledge and skills leads to students’ becoming independent thinkers and creators.
