MUS-BR2-CD  Purposeful Pathways, CD 2 by Roger Sams and Beth Ann Hepburn.

Edited by Jill Trinka.

“Purposeful Pathways: Possibilities for the Elementary Music Room, Book 2” is an extensive collection of developmentally sequenced lessons for learning about music by making music. This collection incorporates strategies from Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Kodaly and Orff Schulwerk. Each of the 36 lessons included is actually a collection of lessons or pathways, giving teachers many choices for how to work with the material. The possibilities in this book can be selected and shaped to work effectively in diverse situations. The teacher chooses which pathways will be explored and in what sequence they will be used. This flexible design makes this resource helpful to all teachers, first-year to seasoned educators!
