Annotated Bibliography of Musical Materials for Children


Heading:
The heading should appear single spaced in the upper right hand corner of the first page and should include the following:

Your Course Number (MUSC448 or MUSC548)
Annotated Bibliography - Sources of Appropriate Music
(Your name)

Do not include a cover sheet.

 

Text Format: Use "Word." Canvas doesn't like some of the other software as well, and you want to be sure that your work is recognized.

10 or 12 point type, 1" margins, in a standard font (such as Ariel, Helvetica, Times New Roman). Annotations should be single spaced and indented to a 1.5 left margin. See example below.

Length: 6-8 entries (2 full pages maximum)

Content :

Choose musical sound recordings- CDs, videos, You Tube videos or other musical materials - that you might use in your classroom. These should be materials for children that you would use with children.

Choose materials that you can physically hold in your hands, not items that are merely listed on a web page or elsewhere. You may be asked to produce any of the items listed in your bibliography.

For each item use proper Bibliographic citation followed by your annotation.

Each annotation should be 50-100 words that are descriptive of the materials and should explain how you expect the materials may be useful to you.

In parentheses at the end of the annotation include the type of materials and where you found them. This is required. (Do not copy annotations from the web or elsewhere.)

This CD includes 15 songs and 3 listening lessons. The songs, sung by children in a range that is appropriate for them, are mostly appropriate for the kindergarten age, and the subjects of the songs include animals, counting, rhyming words, polite behavior and other appropriate kindergarten themes. The listening examples are varied; one is quiet and one is quite lively. The CD is accompanied by a book that includes print copies of the songs and teaching suggestions for the listening examples.
