In the Early Childhood Music Level III workshop, participants will learn all new repertoire and musical activities. The focus of this level is Bloom’s taxonomy. When teaching and assessing various musical activities, teachers are encouraged to apply the six levels of Bloom’s taxonomy and develop questions that require different levels of thinking in their classrooms. Bloom’s learning theories focus on holistic learning, consisting of cognitive (knowledge), affective (emotional), and psychomotor (physical) domains. In addition, teachers may expand their horizons in applying the above areas as a way to assess 21st-century skills.
Differentiated instruction focuses on teaching children with active and flexible strategies since our students
learn at different rates, through different modalities, and come to us with different abilities. Therefore, typical as well as special learners benefit from differentiated instruction.
