Music teaching: special or unique?
Date: November 5, 2013
So I've entered into a philosophical discussion with a non-music teacher colleague regarding elements of music teacher evaluation. He states,
"While teaching music is special, it is not unique. Think of a auto shop teacher, a mechanical drawing teacher, art teacher, a lab-based science teacher, etc. Rather than immediately focusing on music, I suggest that you view teacher evaluation through the broader aspect of pedagogical content knowledge. Fellow math/science/English teachers can talk the talk and know what good teaching is; music teaching is yet another example of that."
Do you agree or disagree? Why?
