Jazz Pedagogy Term Paper

… Jazz Pedagogy

When it comes to pedagogy, "the art of teaching" (Mish 912), there are many different interrelationships among different theories of knowledge, theories of learning, conceptions of curriculum and approaches of broad inquiry for the purposes of schooling. Every teacher is faced with a challenge to effectively convey his or her message of knowledge and inspire today's youth. It takes a certain amount of passion and consistency to pursue such a career. It takes a certain amount of leadership and guts to effectively captivate the student with subject matter, unless of course the subject is jazz.

Music Enrollment in and Attitudes Towards K-12 Music Classes Literature Review

… Music Education

By any objective standard, K-12 public school music programs are in trouble. Due to the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act that renewed the Elementary Education Act 1965 under then president George W. Bush, music programs are being cut due to an increased emphasis on core subjects. Also, music programs are perhaps seen as being less relevant today than they were in previous years and student opinions of music programs are dwindling constantly. The picture is grim and this results in a dichotomy in the dwindling support/interest in K-12 music programs and the overall positive attitudes people have towards music. In a review of the scholarly literature on K-12 public school programs, this author will focus on 3 essential themes as follows:

Beloved has "…new skin, lineless and smooth, including the…. [read more]


Tomorrow / Bright Before Us Term Paper

… In this way Locke emphasizes the hope of the Harlem Renaissance by basing the concept of race on culture and a function of intellect, rather than as a passive result of nature. Thus the Negro transcends the imposed concept of natural inheritence to instead focus on the self-generating concept of cultural inheritance.

It is from this argument that Locke derives the idea of race that is attached to meanings given by human beings in a sociocultural context rather than by nature. Locke combines this concept with physical science when he addresses the race issue in his essay, "The Problem of Race Classification." Here he reveals the shortcomings of science to provide proper criteria according to which race can be classified. Instead Locke stands by the…. [read more]

… .. puppet on the string of my tennis shoe." (Doherty, 2001) He blames the sickness of his own thoughts and imagination on a rootless, fatherless upbringing with a drug-abusing mother and violent peers: "Read up/About how I used to get beat up/Peed on, be on free lunch and change schools every three months." (Doherty, 2001) Eminem provides an artful look into a dark world from which we might prefer to turn away. America is home to lots of angry young men like the one Marshall Mathers portrays or perhaps is in real life. Eminem himself has had several brushes with the law.

Koza (1994), for example, analyzed all the articles about rap that appeared in the three most widely circulated news magazines in the United…. [read more]
