- The curriculum shared here utilizes Terra Nostra, a multimedia symphony about climate change. Variations of the curriculum were developed by Kim Davenport for use in several 100-, 200- and 300-level non-major music courses at the University of Washington, Tacoma. More than 50% of UWT undergraduate students are the first in their family to attend college, and nearly 60% are students of color.Depending on the exact level and subject-matter of each course, Terra Nostra was utilized in support of a variety of learning objectives:Building students’ listening skills, through the combination of music and video, and through the analysis of music without wordsDrawing interdisciplinary connections between music and other disciplinesProviding an example of music created to raise awareness about a timely social issueAlthough the assignments shared here were designed for music courses, they could easily be adapted for inclusion in courses in other disciplines, and this is indeed one of the motivations for sharing this curriculum through a Creative Commons license.
