Tracy Course: Music and Media Communications PEIMS Code: N1170160 Abbreviation: MUMECOD Grade Level: 9-12 Credits: 1.0 (state elective) Year long course.
Tracy MMC 1 is designed to provide access to rigorous and relevant instruction in music and media-based skills for those students entering high school who may not have an extensive background in music. Students will explore and discover their own connections to music and their musicality using technology and media-based resources for listening, recording, sharing, composing, and making music. Students will also analyze the presence of music in contemporary contexts and media, review fundamental musical concepts, and be introduced to skills and knowledge required for some music-related professions both performance, technical, and media-related.
Tracy MMC Essential Knowledge and Skills are READ FROM SLIDE
Tracy The curriculum is based on the 7E model, which is an extension of 5E model, developed by Roger Bybee and team of educators at the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study. Many districts already use related 5E Model, so this design simplifies implementation for those teachers. Many of you are probably familiar with the 7e’s but for those that aren’t, NEXT SLIDE
Tracy The first handout in your packet provides a description/explanation of each of the 7 e’s Elicit -Accessing and ascertaining prior knowledge and understanding -Teacher can frame “What do you think” questions. Engage -Generate enthusiasm and stimulate interest and thinking -Teacher can surprise students, get students thinking, or raise questions through compelling demonstrations or presentations. Explore -Provide opportunities to observe, record data, design experiments, interpret results, organize findings -Teacher can frame questions, suggest approaches, provide feedback and assess understanding. Explain -Introduce models, laws, theories -Teacher can guide students toward generalizations and provide terminology and questions that help students explain their explorations.

In it, a study talks about how different music can color how a person views a visual image. Students can recreate the experiment discussed in the artile using some of the chords, pitches, rhythms that the associate with certain emotional overtones and see if the sound changes a veiwers perception of the image Evaluate: Ask students to articulate musical components and patterns that make them feel one way or another (minor chords make you feel x; slow rhythms make you feel x; low pitched, slow rhythms make you feel calm, etc.) Extend: ASK PARTICIPANTS TO THINK OF SOME EXTENSIONS
Charles These are the Course values, which drive instruction. Activities in the lessons are designed to provide opportunities for students to: Work as a team and in various roles Think conceptually Reflect and evaluate Offer feedback and criticism Create meaningful projects of value to them and their communities
Kay Activity. Give the conversation two minutes. Who has never seen a 78? (Hold one up) I’ll show it around! Does anyone listen to local radio except for news? How many read on a “reader”? How many LISTEN to books? How many of you remember when “ripped” meant you tore your clothing?
KAY MMC I is based on the Music TEKS. It is not a technology course, it is a music course in which technology is the instrument.
Kay Even without previous musical training, all students have deep connections to and interests in music. The goals of this module are to engage students through connections to their own musical interests, build student skill in listening and perception, and enhance student knowledge and appreciation of music as a cultural and historical influence. Aural Culture and Identity guides students in reflecting on the prevalence of music in their daily lives and its role in our culture. Lessons draw on students’ prior exposure to music. In the first Module, students are asked to listen in ways that they have not ever listened before. They begin by listening to the music all around them: the radio, the television, soundtracks at movies, elevator music, ringtones, etc. Students then have the opportunity to research Dick Clark’s American Bandstand and the roots of the Billboard system of ranking and rating music. Copyright rules are important at this point as many students pirate music and movies without a conscious thought as to who might be “hurt” in the process. Finally, students listen to music through history to find what they like about genres they may have never heard before and to put their musical knowledge in context.
Kay Lessons in the module introduce students to a variety of musical genres, styles, and components. Students also place their own musical experiences and tastes in context through a brief musical history overview that spans traditional periods and musical institutions but also includes a look at the very recent technological developments that are responsible for the rapidly changing music industry of today. At the outset of the module, students are introduced to foundational musical concepts and are given the knowledge and vocabulary to describe and analyze musical works. Technology-focused activities introduced during this module include standard presentation software, Internet research and access to music archives, blogging, and an introduction to music editing software. Students also begin investigation of intellectual property issues.
Kay Discuss instructional focus/objective of each lesson (summarize lesson descriptions) Lesson 1 focuses on the music that students encounter in everyday life. Since no prior musical coursework is required for student enrollment in Music and Media Communications I, this opening lesson gives students an experiential introduction to the elements of music. learn basic music concepts and vocabulary describing the elements of music rhythm, form, melody, timbre, dynamics, texture, and harmony; investigate examples of a variety of musical genres to explore similarities and differences; practice critical listening skills; create a blog to communicate and reflect on course activities; and examine how the elements of music can elicit emotional or perceptual responses in the listener In Lesson 2, students conduct online research on music industry developments and institutions; describe music industry developments that capture (or shape) musical trends and tastes; compare and contrast similarities and differences in contemporary musical genres; conduct research on contemporary musicians and their songs; use audio-editing and recording software to compile a musical montage; prepare a brief presentation using Power Point or video applications highlighting an artist and popular song; research and prepare a presentation on a major 20 th century music industry development; and document lesson reflections using media-based communication tools In Lesson 3, students research various eras of music history through online research and access to digital archives; identify major composers and musical developments of each era of music history; begin an introduction to music copyright and intellectual property issues; prepare a brief presentation using PowerPoint and audio and video applications; create questions or concepts to use in evaluating the quality of student presentations; and synthesize presentations into an integrated timeline of musical history
KAY First, we need a common vocabulary. This helps them “speak the language of music” and will help them understand the research they do in the modules ahead. Once they have learned the vocabulary (played a few games, made some note cards) they will study a tutorial on blogging. Blogging will be their “writing across the curriculum” and an opportunity to share their thoughts for the teacher to use as a formative grade. Everyday we hear many sounds: alarm, ringtones on phones, tv theme songs, the band practicing at school, radio, elevator music. Students need to become cognizant of the sounds around them and the many different styles or “genres” of music. We will go on a musical scavenger hunt to listen to several different genres and place the information we discover on a handout that has the main vocabulary words on it. Let’s try this activity: Pass out Attachment 2 of Module one - Qualities
KAY Now that students have had the opportunity to listen to the “popular music” of the 20 th and 21 st century, they will get to hear what was popular during the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern time periods. This is a good opportunity to remind them that if this music was written in the 1500’s (by hand) and it’s still being sung, it must be really good! The lesson is set up as though they were on a magical time machine touring the different era’s. Hopefully, they’ll find a style they can relate to and enjoy!
CHARLES Digital music and everyday technology, from smartphones and mp3 players to free musical editing software, has dramatically expanded our ability to not only access music but to organize musical sounds and create musical products. Students explore opportunities to make digital music, allowing them to articulate musical intentions, practice musical decisionmaking, and create musical compositions. The goals of this module are to guide students in using technology as an instrument in creative expression and performance and to analyze and experience the use of music as a communication tool.
Charles They also investigate how music is used to convey feeling, emotions, and ideas analyzing musical messages and the storytelling potential of music from the most elemental units of music (key, pitch, and tempo) to complex compositions (songs, symphonies, and soundtracks). Students will also experiment with entry-level notation software to compose a piece of music or notate an existing musical work. Finally, students will research intellectual property issues and create a podcast summarizing their research. descriptions to provide overview of instructional focus in terms of skills/knowledge and technology
Charles In Lesson 1, students learn about analog and digital sound; describe differences in examples of analog and digital recordings; practice music vocabulary describing the elements of musical sound— pitch, dynamics (loudness or softness), tone color (timbre) and duration; learn the fundamentals of digital music editing through use of software such as Audacity ; create a brief “found-sound” composition using editing software; and describe, justify, and analyze creative choices and products In Lesson 2, students will identify the emotive potential of the elements of music; experiment with modifying the elements of music to produce different emotive approaches; analyze media messages; analyze how music is used to communicate basic feelings, messages, and ideas in media products; continue use of Audacity music editing software to create a musical product that communicates a message; and explore the use of music in storytelling In Lesson 3, students, Look at the concepts of intervals, music notation, chord structure, and rhythm and meter using standard terminology; Interpret music symbols and terms related to dynamics, tempo, and articulation learn the basic elements of Finale Note Pad notation software; organize musical sounds to create a composition; analyze key compositional elements such as rhythm and keys; perform composition for their peers; use appropriate music vocabulary to critique their own and each other’s work In Lesson 4, students reflect on the impact of technology on music and how communities distribute and share music; research the effects of filesharing on the music industry; explore the uses of the podcast as a communication tool; compare and contrast the cultural role and influence of music across cultures; plan and prepare a podcast on the role of music in society; review intellectual property issues in using music in podcasts; use knowledge of composition or musical editing to create a short theme song for podcast projects; and share podcasts through blogs or other online distribution channels

Kay Music is most often created, performed, and enjoyed as the result of the collaborative effort of many people. This module looks at the avocations and vocations in music and the myriad “players” who are “instrumental” in the making and distribution of the final product. Students will explore opportunities in the broad areas of community-based arts, performance/management, production and technical professions, and new media. The goals of this module are to gain practical knowledge about the array of opportunities in the music and entertainment industries and the skills, knowledge, and experience required for work in these careers; to practice and apply musical skills learned throughout the course; and to experience the collaborative nature of work in the arts.
Kay Students will independently research a variety of specific music careers in music performing/writing, music business jobs, the recording and record industry, and the game industry. Research will include a look at necessary skills, salaries, employment and advancement opportunities, and education and training. Students will also work in collaborative teams to create musical products relevant to the area of study working in industry-appropriate roles. Virtual field trips and guest speakers could be incorporated into this module.
Kay In Lesson 1, students will research the range of non-professional arts opportunities available in their community; describe the different types of music avocations; identify the variety of skills and roles required for the production of a community musical event; and create a promotional plan for a musical event. In Lesson 2, students research music careers in performance/management; explore business and management aspects of music careers; explore technologies used in these career fields; plan, promote, organize, and conduct a school-based concert. In Lesson 3, students will explore the changing landscape of music technology; research the various careers, skills, and educational requirements associated with sound recording; analyze the importance of 21 st Century Learning and Innovation skills; practice intermediate audio editing and mixing skills; record and mix a recording of a live performance; and evaluate the quality of mixed audio clips. In Lesson 4, students will research a range of music-related careers in media; explore technologies used in these career fields; identify required skills and knowledge and academic and vocational pathways for specific careers; and experiment with creating music for video games and applications.
Kay Each lesson will involve a range of introductory activities that elicit prior knowledge and explore opportunities in a career field. This activity is in the careers in performance and management lesson Pass out Attachment 1 3-3 “Name my Game”. After 10 minutes post the answers.
How did you do?
KAY In most of the lessons in this module, students will use resources such as the Careers in Music website to research the range of jobs available and the specific skills sets that are needed, salary expectations, and the education requirements. Students will also research Texas college certificate or degree programs related to the career field. (CLICK ON WEBSITES AND DEMONSTRATE WHAT INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE THERE)
Kay Finally, as a culminating project for each lesson, students will participate in a project related to the industry. For example, They will … READ FROM SLIDE
Tracy In this module, students will research, design, and implement a public service announcement (PSA) aligned with a school or community campaign with a social message. The goals of this module are to synthesize knowledge and skills gained through the course; practice and refine key 21 st century skills such as leadership, creative collaboration, and reflection; engage with audiences; and evaluate impact of projects. GE
Tracy The Capstone lesson still uses the 7e framework and provides some structure to help the teacher guide the student group work on this long-term project. Students will first study the role of music in messaging to affect social change. Students will then engage in creative team processes to brainstorm, plan, and implement project ideas for a public service announcement. As part of the process, they will assemble or compose musical and audio components of the PSA to specifically target their assigned audience and will conduct focus groups to test the effectiveness of the musical elements of their PSAs with that audience. The goal will be to integrate music and audio components with video to communicate the critical message of the campaign. Final PSA products will be distributed or presented as appropriate in school or community contexts. Students will also implement formal data collection strategies to evaluate audience responses and accomplishment of project objectives.
Tracy The Capstone lesson still uses the 7e framework and provides some structure to help the teacher guide the student group work on this long-term project.
Tracy For example, if a school or district has an anti bullying campaign, students will create a Public Service Announcement about the campaign targeting an assigned audience. They will create, integrate, and edit both the video and audio components for the PSA. Targeted audiences will include elementary aged children, middle school students, high school students, school/district staff, and the broader community. You would expect the messaging around the campaigns targeting these different audiences to take different approaches. What might work for high school students would be inappropriate for elementary students. The audio and video components of student projects should be appropriate for the target audiences, demonstrating student’s knowledge of how music can be used in media messaging to achieve certain goals.
Tracy When we piloted the first course in the series, Art and Media Communications 1, we also conducted a formative evaluation of the field test to gather data to inform continued development and improvement of the curriculum and implementation guidelines and to shape the development of the additional courses in the series of which music was next in line. Some key findings from the evaluation were as follows: The course provides meaningful learning opportunities for students and a solid introduction to the full spectrum of 21 st century skills. The curriculum guides students to examine a host of personal, social, and cultural big ideas and to practice higher order thinking and collaboration skills as well as art-related hand skills and technical skills. It also introduces career paths in marketing, communications, and digital media and a range of contemporary workplace skills. Teachers participating in the pilot benefitted from teaching this course. Despite a big learning curve, teachers reported that they gained new skills and understanding of their own and other disciplines and were exposed to new pedagogical techniques that will change their teaching practice. Teachers gained important practical experience leading project-based instruction, orienting instruction to smaller, collaborative groups, and shifting from teacher-directed to student-directed learning. Students were engaged and interested in the course. The creative focus, the opportunity to use a range of technologies, and the practical skills gained were of great value to student participants. Students were pleased and surprised at the extent of what they were able to do, and their self-esteem was particularly bolstered when they created meaningful artworks that were recognized by others. Students reported improved communications skills and had highly positive reactions to the framework of collaboration built into the curriculum. The collaborative nature of course activities was highly appreciated by students. All participants reported that student/student and student/teacher interactions were positive and helpful and focused on the work. High levels of communication and teamwork were cited by students as a key benefit of the course. Challenges identifying specific teacher technology training and preparation time needs need for additional support/training to master course-related pedagogical techniques teacher support in classroom management/strategies for working with at-risk students school practices, such as regularly pulling students out of electives for tutoring, and enrollment realities that impact course fidelity
Tracy Some of the practical considerations we gleaned from the pilot and evaluation included the following. --get with district folks in advance for policy for accessing web resources and posting content internally and externally --work with technology staff to download software on computers and test it in advance --work through all tutorials, and lessons in advance technology-based steps (such as downloading saving files) --create weblists --review general social media practices an cyberbulling resources to prepare in advance guidelines for students in using/commenting on blogs, etc., including --group work, collaborative approaches
A draft version of the curriculum is posted at this website. Feel free to access the curriculum. A revised version, complete with a lesson assessment rubric, will up late in the summer. After the pilot in the 2012-13 school year, we will make revisions, and the final version will be available at no cost to educators anywhere.
Tracy What will you need to teach the course: You’ll need access to computers some or most of the time; teachers can adapt lesson activities to align with access needs. However, infrequent access would not be productive. Hardware that is needed Computers (1 for every 3 students; with occasional individual access in library etc.) Most computer activities are designed for small groups.
