BPP-RASB Race Around the World (Student Book)
Race Around The World is an interdisciplinary recorder game that brings together a marriage of music and social studies. This book, PACD and the supplemental online files offer ways to integrate multiple disciplines into the music curriculum.
The pieces in this book are a smattering of folk music from around the world. Due to the oral tradition of folk music, some melodies are not as you may have seen them in other books. The Birch Tree, for example, is based on a version sung to Mr. Krosner by his Russian grandmother.
The Student Book contains everything each student needs to successfully navigate the game. There are duet scores for each recorder song as well as rules for the game, a passport to be “stamped,” and country information for each song. The student books are sold separately and in 10-packs with special pricing.
The supplemental online materials include animated graphics files, country information and pictures for use with interactive white boards and presentation stations, as well as mp3 files of the practice tracks for each song. In addition, high quality M4a audio files and individual instrument scores for printing or projection are also included.
Purchasers will be directed to a secure web page to download the supplemental materials.
