As Slattery indicates, there is no singular historical account, and seemingly contradictory movements may be occurring at the same time. Through background research, we are attempting to create a “quilt” of curriculum ideas. Research the list of ideas in your assigned period (Wikipedia can be a great initial source for ideas, but do not rely on it solely or quote from it) to develop biographical profiles of persons, detailed accounts of ideas, and major themes/historical significance of texts.
Part II: Add two music educators, ideas, texts, or tests (e.g. “Early Curricular Influences” could include Julia Ettie Crane, and “Social Efficiency” could include the Seashore Test).
Part III: Using the information you have gathered, develop a “portrait” of curriculum during the time period and present in class on the assigned date using presentation software (Powerpoint, Keynote, Prezi).
