The new National Core Arts Standards (NCAS) redefine what students should know and be able to do in each of the arts areas by centering on the processes of artistic literacy—creating, performing, responding, and connecting. Yes, and… Changes to the standards require a paradigm shift for music educators, for music curriculum and lesson planning, and in student achievement.

National Core Arts Standards in General Ensembles is part of Barden’s Maximizing Student Performance series—practical, user-friendly support for music educators. In this book she details the NCAS, then explores each of the artistic processes through practical examples of day-to-day learning activities and a sample cornerstone assessment that is ready to duplicate for classroom use.
