Lesson: Interdisciplinary Connections based on the work of Elizabeth Murray

This unit will be designed for a curriculum design course (or workshop) for art education students at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. The course typically has undergraduate students and a few post-bac students needing to fulfill licensure requirements. The students will create collaborative lessons/unit plans that are inspired by the work of Elizabeth Murray while making interdisciplinary connections.

Assignment by Shannon Rose

For this assignment, I have based my creative and academic content around the Joy2Learn module entitled At the Piano, featuring Alan Gampel. I intend to design a Primary 3 (grade 3) unit on instrumental music, using the Joy2Learn videos about the piano as an introduction. The overarching goal of the unit is for students to engage in the creative process through exploration, design and construction. Students will create their own instrument (string, percussion or wind), and then use it to improvise or perform original compositions.
