Notebook Tab List (to print)
This is not an exhaustive list. You may find you need other sections as you use the notebook as a resource. However, do begin with these 20 sections and in this order as this is how they will be graded:
The first section pertains to your DME class
1 DME - Do not put all handouts in this section. This section is only for those papers which pertain only to this class and which cannot actually be used in an elementary classroom setting. These would include your syllabus, review sheets, assignment instructions, schedule, etc.
The following sections will be your resources for teaching elementary music
2 Recorder - Recorder Karate packet and other recorder arrangements
3 Orff - Orff arrangements
5 Bulletin Boards
6 Pedagogy - information about teaching strategies, theory, methodology, etc.
7 Classroom - non-musical considerations: discipline, room arrangement, organization, supplies, equipment, politics, scheduling, etc.
9 Special Needs
11 Programs/Events - ideas and info about planning programs, learning centers, and projects your children can do for open-house, advanced learning, class projects, etc.
