Everyday Recorder, Recorder Everyday
By Michael Chandler
Book and CD-ROM
This package is accessible to the experienced classroom music teacher as well as to new teachers. The accompanying disc contains interactive visuals for each lesson in three formats: Smart Notebook, Promethean ActiveInspire, and Microsoft PowerPoint. While the files in Smart Notebook and ActivInspire are intended for use with their corresponding interactive whiteboards, they may also be projected onto any normal screen or whiteboard. The interactive portions of each lesson would then be manipulated solely from the teacher's computer.
Everyday Recorder, Recorder Everyday! is an approach that progresses note-by-note incorporating the soprano recorder into the general music class instruction. The focus is on rote learning, playing by ear, and improvisation leading to notation and composition.
There are ten lessons in the book. Each includes stopping points that allow teachers time to include other music making activities during class. There are Day One, Day Two and Day Three teaching steps as well as opportunities to extend the learning.
