00-47164 Everyday Composition
by Joan Eckroth Riley Expand your elementary improvisation and composition curriculum with these beautifully illustrated interactive lessons for your computer or interactive whiteboard. Each lesson plan begins with a song, poem, or story; invites students to improvise as a group and individually using their voices, recorders, xylophones, or percussion instruments; and progresses to a rubric-based composition project. Along the way, students will organically generate, refine, and share their original musical ideas as they expand their artistic decision-making skills. May be used alone or as a follow-up to Everyday Improvisation. This interactive resource works on both individual computers and interactive whiteboards, and is PC and Mac compatible. Recommended for grades 2–5.
