After extensive field-testing in the U.S. and Canada, World Music Drumming has passed all the tests! Aimed primarily at grades 6-8 with extensions into the lower elementary grades and the high school, you and your students will learn drumming techniques, sing lots of great songs with accompaniment and movement, connect African and Latin American cultural traditions to the music performed, and discover how music can be the perfect vehicle for teaching team building, respect, focusing, listening, problem solving, and other important life skills. The Teacher's Edition provides complete lesson plans and a step-by-step teaching process. The handy reproducible Cross-Cultural Student Enrichment Book offers a variety of information and fun for your students. The helpful DVD goes right into the classroom to show how to teach the lessons, using middle school students to demonstrate the parts.
