Course activities support candidates as they develop/refine their ability to use recorder, Orff instruments, percussion, and ukulele in the music classroom; advance understanding of theoretical and pedagogical aspects of music education to encompasses and reflect the Ethical Standards and Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession; expand their repertoire for implementing instructional and assessment practices to meet the needs of students through the Ontario Education Curriculum, Elementary Division; and, explore increasingly innovative ways to create and nurture positive learning environments and integrated learning opportunities.
