5th-6th Grade General Music Cycles
Kershaw General Music classes meet every other day for two cycles per year. Mrs. Manion's 5th-6th grade students will work through the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards for General Music Education using a creative Orff-Kodaly approach and an infusion of music technology. All classes will be graded on a percentage system which may include positive classroom participation, classroom assignments, homework and classroom performance & listening initiatives. Emphasis is placed on best effort, rather than a perfect musical outcome. Practice in how to organize thoughts and work the creative process enhances learning in other subjects. Everyone has the opportunity to grow at their own pace as well as contribute to group projects.
