                                    PLANNED COURSE CURRICULUM GUIDE
I.        COURSE DESCRIPTION AND INTENT:
          The goal of the DISTRICT MUSIC PROGRAM is:
              To help students gain an appreciation of the cultural aspects of music as an art, as a reflection of our society, and as a
               vocation or an avocation.
           To develop knowledge and understanding of music through the acquisition of musical skills.
           To identify musically gifted students and guide the development of their talents.
           To use music as a means of developing desirable conduct, feelings of responsibility, group cooperation, leadership and
               self-esteem.
           To provide opportunities for individual and group musical development through vocal and instrumental performance .
           To stress the importance of music in the total educational plan.
          The MIDDLE SCHOOL INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PROGRAM continues the course intent established by the elementary
          program, and expands upon that content by taking into account the continuously developing performance ability levels of
          the band student. As students become more technically proficient in the performance aspects of their chosen instrument,
          they may also, upon occasion, engage in performance on alternate instruments, i.e. oboe to saxophone, upper reed to low
          reed, etc.
          Through performance in one of the two concert band groups, CADET and JUNIOR BANDS, or in a select ensemble when
          available, students will gain appreciation of the seriousness of the team effort required to produce acceptable performance
          results. Our program is also designed to help students:
           Become proficient rhythmic readers
           Develop a consistent sense of and feeling for balance and blend of ensemble performances
           Become familiar with the major concert keys Bb, Eb, F, Ab, C and Db
           Become knowledgeable in a wide variety of music terminology's and symbols and in their proper applications.

Note: Concerning group band membership -- CADET BAND -- all sixth graders qualify if they have at least one year prior
experience. JUNIOR BAND -- qualification by audition based on performance ability; open to all grades.
Note performance events: Band-O-Rama; Spring Concert; Adjudication
Note performance levels: The majority of students will be performing at levels II, III and IV. A limited number may also be
participating at level I.

                                                    PLANNED COURSE ADAPTATIONS/MODIFICATIONS

                                                                                   Introduction
         The instructional adaptations that follow are provided as suggestions to be implemented with all students, particularly with those in need of special education services
including the gifted. This listing is in no way intended to be exhaustive. Rather, it is reflective of some major considerations in the area of curriculum adaptations/modifications.

         These instructional adaptations will work with any student, but are especially beneficial to those in need of learning support. Some may argue that these modifications are
simply good teaching. Indeed, modifications of this type do represent good teaching. These principles of good teaching become instructional modifications whenever: (1) certain
students in a particular class require such modifications above and beyond what is typically required by most students in that class and (2) without these modifications, these same
students would not succeed.

         Assessment is an integral part of instruction reflecting student progress as well as achievement. Therefore, also included are suggestions for assessment modifications.

    Development of Information Organizer                                                          Open book/note test

    Development of structured study guides                                                        Retesting

      Users and information seekers should familiarize themselves with the purpose and terminology of this Planned Course
Curriculum Guide (PCCG). We suggest that you first read the following:


                                               • PCCG PURPOSE AND INTENT
                                               • PCCG DEFINITIONS


        The PCCG specifies the unit lesson outcome, essential content, standards, activities, resources, and evaluation of student performance.
This sector provides the means to initiate the learning activities to attain the program goal as identified in the course description and intent.

       The standards and outcomes are minimal expectations; further embellishment of the course is discretionary with the instructor
depending upon the capability of the students.

       This PCCG is designed as an ACTIVE document capable of technological modification as required.

       The instructional delivery of this curriculum is quality controlled through the lesson plan development of the teacher.
                                                                            5

                                            PURPOSE AND INTENT


                          The Planned Course Curriculum Guide (PCCG) is a multi-purpose document:
• All staff, particularly new teachers, can understand instructional expectations through the WRITTEN curriculum

• A continuing district-wide instructional process and scope and sequence of subject matter are enhanced. The WRITTEN curriculum is delivered
  through the TAUGHT curriculum [instructional content and learning activities] and is evaluated through the TESTED curriculum [expected levels
  of student achievement - learning outcomes]

• Priority student-centered outcomes are identified and attained through suggested learning activities and content designed to help insure a balanced
  and comprehensive basic curriculum

• Essential content and course standards provide an efficient basis for selecting appropriate instructional materials and resources

• Staff development areas for curriculum improvement are provided

• The PCCG conforms with current Pennsylvania Department of Education curriculum regulations and serves the dual feature of providing both an
  administrative document and an instructional guide

• Content and subject format remain flexible and adaptable to modification - an “active” document

• Special Pennsylvania Department of Education [PDE] legislation is identified

• Parents and students are provided with an overview of the instructional program and each course in particular
                                                                         5
