COURSE OUTLINE TEMPLATES
Revised December 2014

 

Search (control F) using the middle three numbers of the course number (i.e., 121 or 309 etc.).

Not all templates are available at this site. Outlines for First-Instrument Lessons, Classical Theory, Classical History and Classical Ear Training have been sent to teachers. Please contact Rick for any outlines you do not find below (lesson templates and many ET, Theory & History templates are no longer on the website).

All Course Outlines have been created using Microsoft Word. Do not convert them to any other format or disable the locked fields.
To download, click on the course number below and save the file on your hard drive.
Open the file on your computer, using Microsoft Word, and make the necessary changes.

  1. Information cannot be changed or removed unless there is a message indicating that you may do so. All such messages have been highlighted in yellow or are written in red.
  2. Information needs to be added wherever there is an "X," or a highlighted message requiring additional information.
  3. Once you have added the necessary information please remove all highlights.

Some courses (ex. Small Ensembles) will require that you prepare several different outlines as different students in the same ensemble or class may be registered in different courses with different course numbers. Please refer to the course numbers that Alan provides on your class lists in your webfile.

Course outlines for different levels of the same course ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE. The student must receive the correct outline.

Ponderations: are indicated in parentheses directly below the Course Number. The three numbers refer to the number of class hours, number of lab hours (these first two constitute contact hours), and number of homework hours respectively per week (eg. 1-2-1 refers to a course with one hour of class, two hours of lab and one hour of homework). Please take note of, and try not to exceed, the time allotted for homework.

The Ponderation for the combined components of Principal Instrument are only indicated on the Lesson course outline. The majority of the 6 hours allotted for homework is intended to go toward the lesson component of this course (minimum 5 of the 6 hours).

Reminder: The Objectives, Standards, Course Description, Competency to be achieved, and Achievement Context were provided to us and cannot be changed or omitted. Other required information (Course Contents, Required Materials etc.) is mandated either by the Ministry of Education or college policy and MUST NOT be removed.

Please observe the following college regulation from the IPSEA policy document: "If there is a final examination given in the exam period, the teacher may not assign more than 20% to any test, assignment or combination due in the last two weeks of the semester. If there is no final examination given in the exam period, the teacher may not assign more than 30% to any test, assignment or combination due in the last two weeks of the semester."
