This is an excellent general music resource for young people. Lessons and activities from some of Aaron Copland's more popular works, including "Fanfare for the Common Man" and his ballets "Billy the Kid," "Appalachian Spring," and "Rodeo" are presented through reading activities, listening maps and singing. Part II presents an in-depth study of Copland's ballet "Rodeo" through learning centers and cross-curricular activities. The Bernstein Century - Copland CD contains the actual Sony recording of these works for use with the listening maps in the teacher book. The CD is optional, but is essential to making the most of the included activities.
