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

Students at the Proficient level have developed the foundational technical and expressive skills and understandings in an art form necessary to solve assigned problems or prepare assigned repertoire for presentation; make appropriate choices with some support; and may be prepared for active engagement in their community. They understand the art form to be an important form of personal realization and well- being, and make connections between the art form, history, culture, and other learning.
