Cooperative Learning and Music book coverCooperative Learning & Music
Marya Katz & Christi Brown (All Grades)
Bands play in perfect sync. Orchestras require everyone to play their part. Why then, when we teach students about music don't we take advantage of the power of cooperation? Maybe the reason is there just hasn't been a music teacher resource guide that provides the blueprint—until now, that is! In this massive, activity-rich resource guide, you will find cooperative structures and activities to teach the fundamentals for singing, playing instruments, and reading and notating music. There are tons of ready-made cards and blacklines such as Vocabulary Volley, Bass Clef Bonanza, and Interval Insanity to teach the concepts of music composition including melody, rhythm, harmony, form tone color, texture, and expression. All the activities take advantage of Kagan Structures to encourage active participation by every student to ensure everyone is learning about, talking about, and writing about music. Use this book as an entire music curriculum or pick and choose activities to enliven your music class. 396 pages.

Match Mine Music book coverMatch Mine Music
Christi Brown & Marya Katz (All Grades)
Students learn music vocabulary and concepts with these cooperative games. To play, students sit on opposite sides of a barrier. In the game, "It's Instrumental," one partner places his instrument game pieces on the game board. Next, he must describe how he arranged his instruments on the game board so his partner can "match" the layout. For example, "Place the cello under the tuba, next to the saxophone." As students make a match, they get exposure to and practice with music vocabulary. Each game focuses on different music vocabulary and concepts. Book includes 30 games in all. 176 pages.
