I’m going to continue the study of the benchmarks within the enduring understandings under big idea number 1.
Enduring understanding two is: Assessing our own and others’ artistic work, using critical-thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making skills, is central to artistic growth.
Let’s look at the K-5 benchmarks for this understanding.
MU.K.C.2.1 Identify similarities and/or differences in a performance.
MU.1.C.2.1 Identify the similarities and differences between two performances of a familiar song.
MU.2.C.2.1 Identify strengths and needs in classroom performances of familiar songs.
MU.3.C.2.1 Evaluate performances of familiar music using teacher-established criteria.
MU.4.C.2.1 Identify and describe basic music performance techniques to provide a foundation for critiquing one’s self and others.
MU.4.C.2.2 Critique specific techniques in one’s own and others’ performances using teacher-established criteria.
MU.5.C.2.1 Define criteria, using correct music vocabulary, to critique one’s own and others’ performance.
MU.5.C.2.2 Describe changes, using correct music vocabulary, in one’s own and/or others’ performance over time.
