I was surprised to learn recently that the Ohio Department of Education had put out a rough draft of new music standards for K-12. I wasn’t aware that a committee had even been working on revising these! My district uses the state standards as our curriculum, so I immediately checked them out. They can be found at:
At first, it seemed overwhelming to try to figure out what had changed and what hadn’t. To help, I created a table for each grade level listing what was the same, what was similar, what was added, and what was taken out. I thought I’d share these for any music teachers in the state of Ohio, so you can quickly see what the tentative changes are. I am attaching these by grade level.
After you check these out, please go to http://survey.education.ohio.gov/se.ashx?s=60DA72702B993CC1 to submit your input, so that your voice is heard!
