Description

Culturally Responsive Teaching in Music Education presents teaching methods that are responsive to how different culturally specific knowledge bases impact learning. It is a pedagogy that recognizes the importance of including students' cultural references in all aspects of learning. Designed to be a supplementary resource for teachers of undergraduate and graduate music education courses, the book provides examples in the context of music education, with theories presented in Section I and a review of teaching applications in Section II. Culturally Responsive Teaching in Music Education is an effort to answer the question: How can I teach music to my students in a way that is culturally responsive? This book serves several purposes, by: * Offering theoretical/philosophical frameworks of social justice * Providing practical examples of transferring theory into practice in music education * Illustrating culturally responsive pedagogy within the classroom * Demonstrating the connection of culturally responsive teaching to the school and larger communityshow more
