Orff Schulwerk Curriculum & Design

This class will help you organize all of the Orff material and ideas received in level-education classes into a cohesive curriculum, and show you how to implement it in an organized way throughout the school year. Be prepared to teach one 30-minute lesson in the Orff process. The Orff approach will also be compared with the Danielson Framework for Teaching to help you be more successful in your professional evaluations.
