MUSIC - Assessment in the Elementary Music Room

Maureen will offer her strategies for assessing, recording and keeping track of the hundreds of students music teachers see each week.  A discussion and Q & A session will follow.  Attendees are encouraged to bring examples of what they have tried or what they are currently using to complete and record assessment to share with the group.  The more ideas we can share, the better!  This workshop would also be applicable to classroom teachers who have to teach the music curriculum.
