DESCRIPTION: This course is a study of the aims, values, and implementation of fine arts in the elementary school.   Emphasis on the music portion of the course is on fostering creative growth and development in young learners through music.  This course includes application and exploration of various techniques and media.

ATTENDANCE POLICY:  Attendance is highly recommended. You will be held responsible for all information presented in class, including announced grade opportunities, and unannounced grade opportunities. Also, your participation in class or lack thereof may influence your final grade. Please do not disrupt the class by entering the classroom late.

ASSIGNMENT POLICY:  Attendance is highly recommended. Much of the course material is presented in class and may not be found in the text or materials outside the class. Quizzes and exams missed for whatever reason may not be made up. The instructor is the sole arbiter of whether an absence is excused or unexcused; the instructor will make such a determination in a fair and objective way on an ad hoc basis. For quizzes and exams missed because of such excused absence, no grade will be entered. For quizzes and exams missed because of an unexcused absence, the grade will be a 0 for the missed assignment(s).

CLASSROOM POLICY: Proper classroom etiquette requires that you do not speak unless recognized by the professor. Raise your hand to speak. Also, eating, drinking, reading the paper, and leaving the classroom before class is dismissed is not proper classroom etiquette. At the discretion of the instructor, grades may be lowered or raised according to classroom demeanor.




In compliance with the Bethany College policy and equal access laws, I am available to discuss appropriate academic accommodations that may be required for students with disabilities. Requests for academic accommodations are to be made during the first three weeks of the semester, except for unusual circumstances, so arrangements can be made.

The instructor reserves the right to change this syllabus at any time.
