  • Teachers are being evaluated by a new system that incorporates student growth measures as a significant factor in their performance ratings. Participants in this session will experience a field-proven music curriculum that produces student performance data that is criterion referenced. Depicting in-depth scope, sequence, assessment, and reporting, the fundamentals of this curriculum can be applied to any music organization. This session is timely and meaningful to all music educators.
