Kinesthetic maps take the form of movement, both bodily movement or the movement of props, scarves, puppets, icons, and symbols.
Many of the questions on the facets model may be answered by reading what has been written in English or other languages. Library and web resources can be very helpful. For other questions, however, you should use the enactive and iconic modes of knowledge representation to learn and demonstrate your understanding. These modes will better prepare you to answer the following facets model questions: (a) "What does it sound or look like" (b) "What kind of structure or form does it have?" and (c) "What techniques did its creator use to help us understand what is being expressed?" To answer these questions, develop listening maps that help you focus your attention on musical events that occur throughout each of your musical selections. You will be essentially developing your own ability to flow with each of your pieces of music. By the time you complete this assignment, you will have seen many examples of listening maps presented in class and others may be found in the materials on reserve in the library.
A VERBAL DESCRIPTION OF A KINESTHETIC MAP IS NOT THE SAME AS A KINESTHETIC MAP. DO NOT TURN IN A VERBAL DESCRIPTION AND EXPECT TO RECEIVE CREDIT.
TURN IN KINESTHETIC MAPS ON A STANDARD VHS TAPE OR ELSE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO MEET WITH THE INSTRUCTOR.
