The two central goals of Sound Ways are inspired by the National Standards for Arts Education: to strengthen understanding of the relationships between music and other curricular disciplines and to foster an understanding of music in the context of history and of culture. The text is divided into three sections illustrating the interaction between music and the curriculum: Music and the Study of Time; Music and the Study of Place; and Music and the Study of Expression. Within each section, the authors offer concrete examples of how music may be incorporated into a curricular area and the ways in which this incorporation provides students a broader understanding of both subjects. In the Study of Time section, for example, study plans for both the Renaissance and the Civil War are offered. These plans include curricula, music examples, strategies, and lesson plans. For the in-service teacher, whether a specialist or generalist, the book offers guidelines and ideas for collaboration between colleagues and provides jargon-free access to the realm of music education. Engaging and well-written vignettes collected from the field give teachers practical solutions to real-world situations. For the professor of music education, the book is presented in a logical manner that facilitates easy classroom use. Although based on the latest developments in the understanding of education, and of music education in particular, Sound Ways is highly practical and eminently readable an ideal change-of-pace for both student and professor from dry theory texts. Strong scholarship, practical advice, readability, multicultural and contemporary sensibilities, and an approach that stresses the importance of teachers from different academic backgrounds working together to create a truly interdisciplinary curriculum all these elements make Sound Ways of Knowing an ideal resource for in-service elementary and secondary school teachers and a fresh, new textbook alternative for professors and students in the fields of music education and curriculum. Janet R. Barrett is Associate Professor of Music at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. Claire W. McCoy is Associate Professor in the School of Music at the University of Minnesota. Kari K. Veblen is a Research Associate at the University of Limerick in Ireland.
