Course Description

This course addresses the process of music learning in early childhood. Engage in delightful songs and music activities that stimulate music development during the most important years for music learning. Tailor lessons to your own children using the online musical materials, as your early childhood setting serves as the music teaching/learning laboratory for this course. Ongoing pedagogical support is provided throughout the course.

 

This offering, with or without CEUs/CPDUs, will require one hour of your time each week for ten weeks. Twenty minutes of that hour will be engaged with your children in delightful songs and music activities from the Come Children, Sing! Online Music Curriculum, complete with MP3 files and tips for implementation. The twenty minutes for music activities can be broken into two ten-minute segments each week. Another twenty minutes each week will consist of reviewing/preparing the music activities for your children. The final twenty minutes each week will be with accompanying online materials, which might include short postings about music teaching and learning, short audios or videos that you can play directly on your computer, and interactive online activities.


Each week for 10 weeks, a new lesson is posted for you to do with your children. You can use the lessons with any grouping of children ages 0-8, but you must use all 10 lessons with the same group of children, so you can monitor musical growth and development throughout the length of the course. 14 weeks will be allotted for you to complete the 10 lessons, allowing for holidays, travel, or illness. Your online course begins when you register.  Continuing coursework is available for those who wish to earn additional professional development hours


Satisfactory completion of the 10 hours of professional development will be determined by interactive materials and website tracking of your involvement in each of the 10 lessons. Your satisfactory completion will earn a certificate from the Come Children Sing Institute verifying 10 hours of online professional development.* If you want to also receive 1 CEU, you will then be able to click a link to the simple online form at Indiana University/Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI), pay the additional $30 to IUPUI at that time, and receive a university certificate awarding 1 CEU—Continuing Education Unit.

 

*CPDUs—The Illinois State Board of Education will award 10 CPDUs for the satisfactory completion of this course. A certificate from the Come Children Sing Institute verifies 10 hours of online professional development. University CEU is not necessary.
