Giving students an understanding and appreciation of classical music isn't impossible! Music Appreciation for the Middle Grades introduces students to seven different composers: Chopin, Schumann, Wagner, Stephen Foster, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and Edward MacDowell. Designed to be used with the sold-separately 'Great Musicians' biographies written by Opal Wheeler, children first read the assigned chapters and then complete the workbook exercises.
Covering four weeks per lesson, each begins with an outline of assignments. Comprehension questions, mapwork, writing exercises, and other worksheets are included throughout; other pages provide lessons for children to read on the composer's character qualities, interesting facts, and other biographical, historical, geographical, or musical information. QR-codes for online content, journal entry ideas, and charts are also provided. As students learn about each composer in turn, they'll also learn to compare music from different periods, identify music examples, discuss the lives and times of different composers, research and identify different instruments, identify major periods or genres in music, and more.
