Over the past year to mark the centenary of women's right to vote in Canada, the Coalition for Music Education has been gathering stories and playlists, to compile a catalogue of Canadian female musicians and artists. They are thrilled to announce a new learning and teaching module for middle and high school years titled: Finding Your Voice.
The resource involves four modular units; Bread and Roses, Music Industry Trailblazers, Finding a Voice, and In Our Own Voices. Each unit includes teaching objectives and a lesson overview, a compilation catalogue on female Canadian musicians and artists, links to audio and visual materials, activity templates, and an additional resources guide. While this resource is recommended for middle and high school years, it may be adapted for students in other grade levels.
This is fantastic opportunity to honour our Canadian heritage by celebrating the importance of female musicians and artists who have paved the way for us all in Canada. Today, on International Women's Day, we celebrate these trailblazing women past and present, and their remarkable efforts, achievements, and powerful dedication to music.
