Classical music is part of the intangible human heritage, and an art form that's influenced music and culture across the globe. A Young Scholar's Guide to Composers gives students a close-up look at famous composers, their music, and the times they lived in - and exposes them to the beauty that is classical music!
Organized chronologically, chapters are easy-to-read and cover 26 biographies and 6 eras of music; each chapter should take approximately 15 minutes to read aloud. At the back of the book, listening suggestions are given, including links to music and questions for each piece. This course is designed to be completed with lots of hands-on activities that include timelines, maps, composer cards, games, notebooking, and other exercises that will help students remember what they're studying (chapters contain the text to read only; instructions for activities are provided in the introduction or online with the companion guide).
A link to the online companion guide is provided; this online resource includes student reviews, answer keys for the lessons and reviews, reproducibles, games, and coloring pages.
160 pages, hardcover. Non-consumable. Grades 4-8 but adaptable for younger or older students. 32 weekly lessons cover one year.
