Musikgarten Blog: Key Issues in Early Childhood Education: Part 3
Content and Measurement of Success in Early Childhood Education
This final installment in our continuing series of key discussion topics that early childhood educators face in the classroom has touched on several traditional assumptions that educators often make. Debunking many of those academic myths, we have focused instead on successfully nurturing children through inspired music education. Most of these conclusions and deliberations are posed and explored in an article published in Early Childhood Connections by renowned neuroscience educator Dr. Dee Joy Coulter, Ed. D. Our last blog topic considered the unnecessary urgency that some music educators place on curriculum and lesson plans. This final post of the series will address the issue of content and measurement of success in early childhood music education.
