The Center for American Music at the University of Pittsburgh has received funding to plan for the expansion of "Voices Across Time: Teaching American History Through Music."  Originally started in 1995, the project has produced a Teacher's Resource Guide and companion website, five National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Institutes for Teachers, and a variety of workshops and seminars at school districts and conferences throughout the United States. The purpose of the project is to assist educators across the K-12 spectrum to use the social and historical messages within music, and especially song, in their curricula, addressing standards for learning in American history and the social studies, English/language arts, and music. More information about "Voices Across Time" is available at http://www.library.pitt.edu/voicesacrosstime/.

 

The next step is to create a focus group of teachers to provide ideas for additional content that will address multi-cultural perspectives, current educational approaches, and technical delivery. Focus group members will include teachers who represent varied regions, school settings, and instructional approaches to a range of subject areas and grade levels germane to the focus of the Guide. No particular background in music is required, though an interest in teaching with music is expected. Compensation will be provided.
