3 COURSE DESCRIPTION Students will explore beginning to intermediate guitar playing. This course is for students who want to learn how to play the guitar and students who have already begun playing the guitar. The course begins with open chords, note reading and basic strumming. Styles of guitar playing will include the blues, folk, rock and classical. Students will be expected to provide their own guitar and will practice and play during class on a daily basis. If the student does not own a guitar, recommendations will be made as to renting a guitar. ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS AND PERFORMANCE TASKS Following the Understand by Design format, we have added Essential Questions and Performance Tasks to this curriculum. By adding Essential Questions, we are striving for students to reach a deeper understanding of the material in each course and thus not only retain the information, but also be able transfer the knowledge to different situations as needed. The performance tasks are written to provide real world application of the material. Therefore, where noted, the performance tasks must be the assessment used for that particular section. Complete copies of each UbD unit are available from the department supervisors upon request. STANDARDS This curriculum specifies the content to be mastered for this course. Interim assessments for that content are a part of every instructional unit. In addition, this curriculum specifies ways to support integrated/cross disciplinary instruction to address the implementation of all nine of the NJCCCS areas in the resources and activities columns. In particular, writing-across-the-curricula is emphasized in all nine NJCCCS areas. 3 of 7
