MUE 535: Teaching and Learning: Week 1

Music Teaching and Learning

Topic A: Introduction and Overview

Readings - The readings this week are not for in-depth internalization (we don't have time to test on everything)--but do be familiar with the content that is included because it is all very good background information for -- well -- for your music education.  Take time to read the *Plummeridge (very long article) for the discussion posts.  The Swanick article will come in handy later, so recall its location.
