About the workshop:

How can we encourage more student-centered learning in the music classroom while meeting standards and inspiring lifelong learning? Learn to use an inquiry-driven approach to meet (and exceed) standards - that keeps active music making at the center of student learning.  In this workshop, participants will experience a create-focused inquiry lesson that can be applied or modified for use across grade levels in music classrooms.  Leave with ideas for immediate classroom implementation as well as an understanding of how to create your own inquiry-based lessons in the music classroom that keep students actively engaged in “music-ing.”  This workshop will use standards as a springboard and draw on inquiry, backward design, and concept-based tools and strategies for intentional curriculum design.
