This is the perfect planning tool for teachers implementing the new National Core Arts Standards in music ensemble classes including choir, band, and strings, from beginners through the end of high school. Use it as a checklist to make sure you are covering each standard, or plan your teaching and assessment of each standard by marking the date for each directly on the form. The entire document comes in Powerpoint for easy editing and printing.
This product is included in the Ultimate Music Teacher Organization Binder
, which also includes concert planning, seating charts, recorder karate checklist, music classroom inventory, lesson plan template, and the IEP at-a-glance files, and the Music Teacher Entire Life Planner Bundles
, which also include a teacher planner, teacher entrepreneur planner, and home management binder.
Pages are organized by ensemble level and anchor standard, with space to note teaching and assessment of each area within each anchor standard. All of the standards for each level fit onto a 2-page spread for easy viewing and planning. Check out the preview to see an example of the layout.
The ensemble standards are labeled by the level rather than grades, since different school districts start ensemble classes at such a wide range of ages. A powerpoint version of the file is included so you can label each level with your corresponding class title (I have included a link to download the matching font for free so your title will match the rest of the file).
You can get the standards for PK-8 general music in the same format in the National Music Standards Planning Sheets (PK-8 general)
. Similar planning sheets are also available for the Ontario Curriculum grades 1-8 Music Standards
and the TEKS K-5 General Music Standards.
These standards are available on the National Association for Music Education website, organized by strand, at this link
