(1) Evaluating Internet Resources: Most of what is posted on the Internet has never
been subjected to the rigors of peer review common with many traditional publications.
Students must learn to evaluate the reliability of information of the websites they visit.

       Select two websites that provide information about a topic related to your
        curriculum. Cite the URLs and names of both sites and explain which is more
        reliable using evaluation criteria.
    1.SCSBOA- is a great web cite for Band directors it stands for Southern California
School Band and Orchestra Association. Its a great source of in formation for music
directors. It includes dates of many music festival ns different honor groups for you
students to attend. It also includes Music Education resources. For Band and Orchestra.
Also It includes job listing for music directors.

    2. MENC. Its great web cite for music teachers. It’s the web cite for the National
Association for Music Educators Includes the same as the SCSBOA web cite but it
includes more resources for music teachers. This is the association that fights for the arts
in the capital to make sure that all students have music as one of their electives in their
school. Between these two webs cites the MENC is a better web cite. The information is
more reliable than the other. It even includes information about starting a mariachi in
your school.

(2) Research with Electronic References: Since we live in the Information Age, it is
particularly important that teachers are able to access and evaluate information to prepare
accurate, up-to-date lessons, and to teach their students the principles of electronic
research. In this activity you will examine a variety of electronic references in your quest
to acquire information for lessons or other professional activities.

      Identify two topics to research using electronic references (broadcast news,
       almanacs, quotations, etc.). Research the first topic using at least one resource
       from each of five categories of electronic resources. Repeat the process with the
       second topic, using references from five additional categories. Include the URL,
       name of the resource, key information acquired, and a screen capture from each
       resource. (See examples of research ideas).
      Identify the special features (e.g. hypertext linking of terms, Boolean search
       capabilities, archival search, knowledge tree, downloadable movies, online audio
       transcripts, animations, translations, reference lists, printer-friendly output,
       multimedia links, PDA or bookreader download, visible directory structure, etc.)
       of each of the reference tools you have used.

      List criteria for determining the authenticity of information on a website.
      Compare and contrast electronic references with their traditional paper
       counterparts. Discuss at least ten tasks or features that are possible with electronic
       resources that are not possible with traditional paper resources.
      Develop a lesson plan that incorporates electronic references. Your lesson plan
       should require students to use two or more electronic references to address a
       specific curricular objective.

Lesson Plan

June 16, 2005
Beethoven's Compositions

Song: "Beethoven’s Symphony Number 9"
Concept to Teach: Texture in artworks

Concept: Students will see a difference in actual texture in two paintings. They will also
experience this difference in texture in music to reinforce their understanding. They will
use at least two of electronic references to understand the concepts of the lesson

Objectives: The students will:

 1.Look at an oil painting and notice how the actual texture is thick compared to a
watercolor painting. They will go on the computer to find this pictures using.
 2.Listen to portions of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with thick and thin texture. They
Also look at the music score using the book they are going to research only.
 3.Experience texture in two different forms.


  1.Computers to find the watercolor or similar painting
  2.Internet access to find An artwork with thick texture oil painting with the paint
applied thickly to create texture
  3. Library card to find the recording and score of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony or
some other music that will contains both thick and thin texture

Preliminary Procedures:

The teacher will have already discussed simulated texture in artworks (detail which
makes the artwork look real, provides depth, or three-dimensionality. Now, introduce the
concept of actual texture in artworks; texture that is real and stands out on the page


   1.Provide the students with the two paintings and have them find it online for them to
get a good look at the differences in texture. Tell students that one has thick and the other
has thin texture. Ask them which they think has each.
   2.Once they see the differences in texture, their understanding can be enhanced by
listening to different textures in music.
   3.Ask students to listen carefully to the music and ask them what they notice when you
play the first piece that has thin texture.
   4.Then play the musical piece that has thick texture and ask what the difference is.
   5 .Finish up by returning to the paintings and ask students again which has thick and
which has thin texture.


June 16, 2005

Students are able to identify which painting has the thick and which has the thin texture
after listening to the music. They will also be able to describe why the one painting has
thicker texture. They will also show me that they where able to find this with the electric

A follow-up activity would be to present other paintings and music and ask students to
identify what has thick and what has thin textures.

Teaching of a Musical Element:

The musical element that I would teach would be texture. I would teach it in the same
way as I had for art, except reversed. I would introduce the music first and have the
artworks to enforce the musical texture.

(3) Educational Research: Teachers should be familiar with research related to the
teaching of their discipline. The Educational Research Database (ERIC) provides access
to abstracts from numerous educational publications, and is the best place to start when
conducting educational research.

       Find two or more abstracts of recent, relevant articles related to the use of
        technology in the teaching of your subject. Summarize implications for the
        teaching of your subject. Cite the articles using APA format., and include the text
        of the abstracts.
Title: Beyond Beethoven and the Boyz: Women's Music in Relation to History and
Authors: Scott, Britain; Harrassowitz, Christiane

Abstract: he typical music history or appreciation class teaches students to analyze
musical elements and think generally about the aesthetics of historical periods but rarely
encourages them to consider why the overwhelming majority of the composers discussed
are white, European, middle- and upper-class men. Courses on popular music often
discuss jazz and rock without addressing issues such as the barriers women jazz
instrumentalists faced and the sexual objectification of women rock artists. Gender-blind
world music curricula may also overlook the tremendously important role music plays in
women's everyday lives, particularly when those women live in cultures where their
voices are otherwise silenced. When women are integrated into the curriculum, they have
the opportunity not only to add their names to the existing canon, but also to help
students engage in critical thinking about how music is related to issues of sexism (and
racism, classism, and ethnocentrism) within and outside the field, across cultures, and
over time.The National Standards for Music Education, adopted in 1994, serves as the
basis for most state-level K-12 music curriculum goals.

This Journal contains information about Beethoven’s and compositions. This Journal is
great specially if you a composer or even a music director. The intended audience for this
publication are the people who love Beethoven's music, who like to read about how his

up with important Beethoven festivals and conferences, and who remain devoted to
understanding his music in an ever richer manner.
