Group Project Description

 

PRESENTATION

Develop a set of musical tasks to assess an assigned population's responsiveness to music within three specific domains. Refer to Hanser pg. 50 and 51 to choose the domains you determine are most appropriate for your given population. I have only provided age ranges - your group can decide on the specific diagnostic population within the provided age range. Generate three (3) activities, songs, etc. that your assessment tool will be comprised of. Presentations should be no less than 15 minutes and no more than 25 minutes in length. Be sure to rehearse your presentation, in part, so you can get an accurate sense of the amount of time you will need to present. Choose one of the following options for your format:

  1. Role-play the situation. You decide the responsibilities of each person in your group; e.g. one therapist four clients; one therapist one client and the other three group members provide narration; etc.
  2. Provide a lecture or didactic description of your assessment tool. Be sure to provide visual aids of some sort; overhead slides, powerpoint presentation, etc.
  3. Other effective ideas - be creative!
  4. ALL MEMBERS MUST BE AN ACTIVE CONTRIBUTOR TO THE PRESENTATION TO RECEIVE FULL CREDIT

Be sure to bring all materials you require to class; instruments, boombox, CD's, MIDI equipment, etc. If you are using electronic equipment and media, make sure it works and is ready to go prior to class. You can sign instruments out of the resource room. Do not wait until the "morning of" to do this as instruments and other equipment you may need may be already checked out by practicum students.

PAPER

Write a paper (one paper for the whole group - put all names on a cover page) including the following information (be sure to include these exact headings for my review):

To include all content listed above, your paper should be approximately 2 to 3 pages typed, double spaced, one-inch margins, with 12-pt. font. Reference and appendices are considered additional pagesI.
