Music 1313 – research strategies for weekly assignment2 Music 1313 – research strategies for weekly assignment2 Presentation Transcript

  • Music 1313: Research Strategies for Weekly Assignment 1
  • Music 1313 Study Questions
    Week 1-2: Listening to jazz;
    Practice/ Conditions/ Economics; Early Jazz (Part 2) 
    Test your knowledge of musical terms.  Take a look at the list (below) of general
    and jazz-specific terms.  Write your own short definitions for all the terms you know.  Then check the sources provided for each term.  Does everyone agree? Note the areas of consensus and disagreement you find.  Continue with the terms
    that don’t have provided sources.  Define them yourself, if possible, and then find
    the best (most cogent, most reliable, most concise) definitions.  Note where you
    found them (i.e., write down the citation) and bring them to class.  Class discussion will focus both on the content of your findings and on the process of finding and evaluating sources. Where is the best place to start:  Google? Google Scholar?  Oxford Music Online?  Another source?
