This is a facilitated online course that includes some mandatory synchronous sessions with real-time group interaction set by the Instructor. Audio and video recordings will be a required element of the learning.
The Vocal Music P/J Part I AQ Course equips and enables candidates to explore ways of incorporating music into all areas of the Primary/Junior curriculum. Through examination of the renewed Ontario Arts Curriculum and music’s big ideas, candidates learn ways to encourage their own students to be creative and critical thinkers who can use and enjoy using movement, voice, and instruments to express thoughts and feelings.
Course activities introduce and support candidates’ practical use of the recorder, Orff instruments, percussion, and ukulele in the music classroom. Theoretical and pedagogical aspects of the course equip candidates to design a music program that addresses and encompasses the Ethical Standards and Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession and to implement instructional and assessment practices that meet the needs of students in relation to relevant curriculum policies and expectations. The course also supports candidates as they identify and develop ways to create positive learning environments to encourage students’ well being.
