Holes and goals pp

  1. 1. Holes and goals: Music History<br />Linda Cruikshank<br />
  2. 2. Essential questions<br />What are the different time periods and what genres of music would you expect in each?<br />Within those different genres of music, what are the different forms that were associated with each?<br />Which composers were exemplars in each genre/time period?<br />
  3. 3. Enduring understandings<br />Distinguish between different time periods, especially classical, romantic, baroque, impressionist: orchestration is a key component, tonality, and instrumentation are all important in distinguishing between the time periods. <br />Knowing distinctive characteristics of different composers makes it easier to distinguish their music. <br />On the same token, knowing the time period the piece is coming from, the easier it is to decide who the composer is.<br />
  4. 4. Products<br />Music History Timeline: 1350-1900’s<br />On 3x5 index cards I researched and found composers, their time period, and exemplar works<br />Practice Praxis II test<br />Took a 100-question practice test, graded it, and then on the answers I got wrong I went through and wrote down the correct answer<br />Pandora Music Listening Quiz<br />Put Pandora, Inc. classical radio station on shuffle and listened for two (2) one-hour periods, wrote down who I thought the composer was and why<br />Six haikus that involve the five time periods<br />Loved this activity, making a very concise definition about each time period, actually kind of difficult<br />
  5. 5. Resources<br />Four resources helped me out the most:<br />www.wikipedia.org<br />www.pandora.com<br />Norton Anthology of the History of Western Music<br />Praxis II practice book and test<br />
  6. 6. reflections<br />I have been bad at history since fifth grade when I received my first “C” . Things did not get better in undergrad. Luckily, through this project, I was able to re-learn, somewhat, what I was taught in the past.<br />Unfortunately, I have a lot of information that I must continue to keep learning because even though I have learned and reviewed, if I were to be asked what specific terms were I would still struggle to find some answers.<br />
  7. 7. questions<br />How can I keep my mind fresh in terms of remembering music history once I’m out of the classroom again?<br />Is there something else I can do to remember things or should I just keep on practicing and reading in the hopes of it all clicking at some point?<br />
  8. 8. Next steps…<br />Keep my index card timeline and use as a reference when needed and pull it out every so often to practice. <br />Keep up with listening to classical music, something that I have stopped in recent years.<br />If you have any ideas, feel free to let me know!<br />
